Welcome to the June 2016 Blue Heron Speaks feature! This month, we have a very special double feature of authors, Jeanie Tomasko and Sharon Auberle. We usually only have one guest poet per month, but to kick off the summer, we are graced with this beautiful collaboration of poetry and art postcards. Jeanie and Sharon are both accomplished poets, and Blue Heron Review is so pleased to share their ekphrastic work with our BHR readers.
For this showcase, we are shining a spotlight on the poetry of Jeanie Tomasko and the artwork of Sharon Auberle. When two artists come together on a shared project, something almost magical happens. A fusion of ideas, images, and layers of interpretation come to life on the page, to produce a new creation. Please visit the Blue Heron Speaks page of our site, to view the splendor that is poetry and vision coming together!
Editor’s Note: After this special double feature, the Blue Heron Speaks page will be on summer vacation until September 2016, when we will be back with a new list of superb guest authors. Don’t forget that our summer issue is due to be launched at the end of July. Every issue is truly a joy to curate, as an editor. I hope to bring you the very best of contemplative and meditative verse at BHR. Now go read our June Blue Heron Speaks feature! It is a feast for the eyes!
