In the Cafe, bonus Throwback from Stephen

For Christine:

The aroma of coffee invites us
Inside we pause to listen
Our hearts beat, we are alive
Heard by those who gathered.

Perhaps I should start writing these quatrains again… hmmm… scratches his chin like an emoji.

Stephen began writing poetry as a teenager in New Hampshire and kept at it throughout a 27 year career in the Navy. During that time he found homes for poems in Scholastic, Powhatan Review, Skipping Stones, Portfolio, and the Virginia Pilot as well as having a collaborative poem shared in Christine Ray’s brilliant Myths of Girlhood. For a year he actively blogged as Sailor Poet and co-founded the Go Dog Go Cafe. Following his retirement from active duty, he has begin pursuing a writing career in earnest, has resumed blogging at fullbeardlit.org and is now the managing editor at the Go Dog Go Cafe.
