Winter is often a time of reflection, stillness, and deep silence, as we travel inward and wear the cloak of this quiet season. After reading and re-reading this issue, I notice that there are recurring themes of grief, remembrance, and longing. I hope you will take the time to savor these poems and images. Since we only have 2 issues per year, each collection is full, colorful, and has many voices. Each poem deserves its own spotlight. Memory finds us in the heart of winter and begs us to listen.  Take time out of your day to rest, pull up a chair, and read these beautiful, poignant poems.

With blessings of peace this winter,
Cristina M. R. Norcross
Editor, Blue Heron Review

Blue Heron Review Issue Number One Released Today!

Welcome to the first issue of Blue Heron Review!  To read all of the beautiful poetry and art offerings in this issue, please visit the Blue Heron Review Issue 1 Winter/2014 tab on this website.

I hope you will find poems and images that speak to you this winter, as we gently prepare for spring and come out of hibernation.  The contemplative months of winter allow us to search within and re-connect with the self.  Each poem in this issue, shines a light on all that is sacred about existing in this beautiful world.  Enjoy!
