Blue Heron Review
Welcome to the Blue Heron Review “Aspects of Love” Summer 2018 Issue!
I hope that you enjoy these poems and images, as much as I do! Love is at the core of everything we do (or at least it should be). This issue includes many different aspects of love: romantic love, the love of family, the love of a deep friendship, the love for a dear pet, the love of nature, the love and passion for one’s vocation, and the love for life itself.
With 42 poets and 11 visual artists represented from all over the world, this issue is literally a global feast for the heart and mind. Thank you to all of our talented contributors for making this magical issue possible. A special thank you to artist, Jocelyn Duke, who so graciously gave us permission to use her artwork, “Never Forget Your Song,” for our issue’s cover.
