"Editor-in-Chief, Tule Review 2015"
Tule, pronounced "tool-ey," is a Central American word (adopted by Spanish settlers) for the low, marshy land of Northern California where reeds grow. Bay Area elk and fog are referred to as "tule elk" and "tule fog."
And may I just say, I am trule happy to have my poem published. (Maybe there is a place for poems that rhyme in this incomprehensible modern world?)
Onward & upward.
