Ellen Liberatori

Thank you for the wonderful poems we received inspired by the image of the "Door," which you can read here. As I write this we are almost out of the cold grip of winter, making me think of adventures and escape.  And not just any escape.  I want to join the circus- that traveling troupe of acrobats, animals, and pageantry that give rise to feats of daring and adventure.  We are enclosing Chagall's image, "The Circus Rider" to fire up your imagination.  We invite you to write your most beloved poem, to be the bareback horse acrobat in the Circus, the ringmaster or any of your favorite performers.  Close your eyes, hear the kaleidoscope of music as the pageantry begins under the Big Tent. Please send us your poetry to by May 15th, 2015.
