Staff Picks Staff Picks for February 2014
Posted by mamta on Friday, February 21, 2014 (06:35:55)

Another month and I am back with another round of staff picks. I have always found imagist poems fascinating mainly because of the clarity and precision of words and expression. The minimalist style and the visual representation paint a clear picture to the readers. My pick for this month is one such poem by a new poet where the economy of words and vivid images strike a beautiful scene.
