Help us to be ever faithful gardeners of the spirit, who know that without darkness nothing comes to birth, and without light nothing flowers. ~ May Sarton
Leaving its two-year hibernation behind, Smoky Quartz celebrates its return with a poetry-packed Spring 2019 issue. Twenty-three poems contributed by eleven poets take us from formal to free verse with stops at 7-Eleven, a wood pile and Hades. Flowers are bountiful and migrating birds are back. The issue also features a photo essay and photographic art.
