Arrest your fears don’t panic yet When the smoke clears they may forget and something new will take their view We'll be scot-free

Apropos(ish) of the title (NOT the content, really!) of my poem, by wonderful coincidence 20 minutes after it posted I received an email from Susi Bocks saying the anthology of poetry “The Sound of Brilliance” had been published and is available! Susi created this anthology from poems that were part of the “The Short of It” series she created and hosts on her site “I Write Her” (which you should all subscribe to). I am happy 😁 🎉 to say there are three ha’sonnets of mine – “Sweet Little Lies,” “Out of Context,” and “We Can’t Go Back” – included among the many wonderful poems by great poets in the collection!
It is available in both paperback (here) and eBook (here) version on Amazon.
