The new issue of Eclectica is up today with two of my poems: Ghazal of Lost Sleep, part of my "Gazillion Ghazals" series, and Elegy, an elegy for my grandmother. She had a Mynah bird named Lucky whose favorite shriek was "Eleanor!" And she smoked Lucky Strikes, mostly in secret. She lived to be 95, though she said she was 94.

Thx to ohmycavalier for the wonderful drawing.

Enjoyed both poems, Sarah. Especially liked the image of smoke in "Ghazal of Lost Sleep".

Congrats, Sarah! Those are absolutely wonderful. Can you tell me more about your "Gazillion Ghazals" series?

Thanks for reading. Laura, I'm not very far on this series - thinking about it though. cheers
