Life by the throat

The Guest Book

by Richard Lemm 

When I consider the gifts PEI’s poets have given to the Island, I remember favourite quotations about poetry. Bob Dylan says, “I like to think of myself as the one who carries the light bulb.” Robert Frost asserts, “Poetry is a way of taking life by the throat.” “A poet,” writes W.H. Auden “is a person who is passionately in love with language.” Salman Rushdie

The Brew

We hear the sea

We hear the sea
The Cove Journal

by JoDee Samuelson

The sea roared all night, the rain pounded down, and in the morning the shore was strewn with broken crab bodies, flecks of foam, stranded jellyfish, and seaweed tips of brown algae fucus serratus.
