As we look at the stars and let our minds wander into the many galaxies, we come to feel so small and insignificant that anything we do, say, or think seems completely useless. But if we look into our souls and let our minds wander into the endless galaxies of our interior lives, we become so tall and significant that everything we do, say, or think appears of great importance.
We have to keep looking both ways to remain humble and confident, humorous and serious, playful and responsible. Yes, the human person is very small and very tall. It is the tension between the two that keeps us spiritually awake.
After a false start and big-time help from Rob MacEwan, the April (Poetry Month) issue of The Dead Mule is online.
Thank you, Rob.
Each April, the Mule presents the poet laureate of a southern state. This year we are featuring NC Poet Laureate Joseph Bathanti.
Also in this issue – in a feast for the poetic – are 27 other poets.
Enjoy. Enjoy. Enjoy.
