Phoenicia Publishing is honored and delighted to announce that our nominations for the 2018 Pushcart Prize are six poems by Luisa A. Igloria, from her book The Buddha Wonders if She is Having a Midlife Crisis (Phoenicia, March 2018).
It was a hard choice, to decide on just six poems form this stellar collection. In the end, we chose the following ones, "Five Mysteries," "Never Full, Never Empty," "Ghazal, With Cow Burial," "Absence, Presence," "Keep Me," and "Is the Sparrow happier than we are? Is the crow?"
Congratulations, Luisa, and thank you for continuing to write memorable, unique, and personal poems that help to illuminate life, and help us to live it.
