This was a difficult issue to compile. My husband passed away in July, and there have been many darks days in the wake of this loss. But the poems in this issue reminded me why I turn to the writing and reading of poetry, why this urge to make meaning is so essential, so necessary, and ultimately, is so healing. These poems offered me hope and solace, and I hope they offer you the same.
