Beltway Poetry Quarterly

In the latest issue…

November 2021: Volume 22:4 Rooted, is an issue that holds ancient secrets, deep rings of sadness, strength, and song. There is a mycorrhizal network between the poets; not all write of ecology, but together are a palm tree spreading her branches skyward, one poem reaching towards the next. These poets sow, seed by seed, a forest pulsing with decayed ghosts of war, peace, home-cooked meals, accents, and scents melding together on a cemetery wind. To all the poets gathered under the shade of this grand tree, welcome. To all readers, enjoy their lyric flights, their resolutions in sound and meter, their poems.
