Poems by the Editor and E-zine Contributor Adele Gardner Are Published in Eternal Haunted Summer
From the Editor: My fantasy/mythology poem, “The Battle of Shuhyung and the Yellow Emperor” (Rhyming, 34 lines) now appears in the 2014 Autumnal Equinox issue of Eternal Haunted Summer http://eternalhauntedsummer.com/issues/autumn-equinox-2014/the-battle-of-shuhyung-and-the-yellow-emperor/. The poem was inspired by the Taoist myth of the origin of the universe featuring Shuhyung (the force of dark matter), the Yellow Emperor (the force of light), and Niuka (the horned dragon & ally of the Emperor). I first learned of this interesting origin myth in The Book of Tea by Okakura Kakuzo.
Also, fans of Adele Gardner’s work will be happy to find her “Black Cat Spare” in the same issue of EHS http://eternalhauntedsummer.com/issues/autumn-equinox-2014/black-cat-spare/. Ms. Gardner’s work also appeared in the August 2014 issue of Songs of Eretz Poetry E-zine, and more of her work is forthcoming in the November issue.
