A Love Poem to Women and For Women in Sparks Magazine
Tuesday, July 15, 2003  7:00:00 PM

by Carolyn HowardJohnson



Poetry
Award-winning novelist writes words of love: "To touch the caterpillar-curve of a baby''s thigh..."

----------------------------------------
“To touch the caterpillar-curve of a baby’s thigh
To breathe in guileless oxygen…”


So begins the poem “Woman’s Day” by award-winning novelist Carolyn Howard-Johnson. It was just published by Sparks, a magazine for women edited by Carol Singer and Deborah Singer.

Howard-Johnson’s first novel, This is the Place, has garnered eight awards since its release in 2001 and an excerpt was published in the prestigious Copperfield Review. It was also a NUW Book Club Selection in 2002. Her second book, Harkening: A Collection of Stories Remembered, has won three awards including WordThunder.com’s annual award for excellence.

The poem selected for this print magazine is from Howard-Johnson’s book of poetry in progress called Skyscapes: A Woman's View.

An abbreviated version of Sparks Magazine is also published on the web. Visit it at www.sparksmagazine.com. A copy of the magazine may be ordered by caling 619-281-6250.
