New Issue of MiPOesias

"Korean Adoptee Returns to Seoul," a (fairly) recent 'Korea poem' of mine, is published in the new issue of MiPOesias in the "Best of Cafe' Cafe' 2005" section.

The editors do a beautiful job---pictures, reviews, interviews, and plenty of good poetry. I'm grateful to be a part of it. Surf around and enjoy all the nice language.

What a wonderful poem, Lee. I'm going to make sure and share it with one of my (very talented) writing students, who is also a Korean adoptee.

Lee Herrick said...

Thanks, A. Heart! I hope your your student likes it. And I hope 2006 goes your way.

p.s. (I would love to have some poems for our next issue!)

Lee
I'd read the poem on cafecafe and it moved me tremendously. You're such a talented writer and I esp like it that you stay grounded in something the reader can relate to. Am so glad it's in the journal.
