Winamop apologises for the late running of this edition of
the E-zine, it is due to the internet being too hot.
No, it wasn't really, I was waiting for some more stories
to come in!
Many thanks to those who have risen to the challenge and
sent stuff in, I appreciate it.
Although the fiction is in short supply, there is an
abundance of high quality poetry on the site this month - and some art - so
lots to get stuck into.
Here we go..
Hickman has a new story for us. You know how old houses seem to have
an aura about them? Try Reaching Into the Gaps and see what you
find.. but be careful!
Alex Wyte has been doing housework,
and garden work. Surely he can't get into trouble doing that? The story is
called: A Spring Clean.
Greenberg's story is about a trip to Israel with a group staying in
a comfortable hotel. Who is that man at breakfast, surely he's not part of our
group?.. It's Emmet , that's who.
KJ Hannah Greenberg again brings us
a collection of her photography. Here are six more - kicking off with a blue
Terry Brinkman. Has a new piece of
art called Wolf. It's on his art page where you can see all his
other pictures too.
Miller has a poem about a singular type of insect, the praying
mantis. I don't think I've ever seen one.. The poem is called The Praying
Mantis as you might expect.
Mary Cresswell was last with us a
couple of years ago and it's great to have her back. Her poetry has depth but
amuses too, a nice combination. Here we have Advance Planning - Walking
With The Gods and Amuse Bouche.
Poussin has contributed many times before and these five poems are
some of his best: Acid Campfire - Beauty Masks - Still Failing - What if?
and When a Woman.
Robinson has a feast of poetry for us this time in his unequivocal
style. The poems are: Read This - All About You - Anna - Burn Out
and Studio Work.
Bakelas is back for the first time in 2022 with a collection of
three new poems which I am very happy to present to you. They are: a poem
for me - detritus and stone masons.
Greenberg again brings us poetry in addition to the story and
photography. The three poems are: Gibbous - This Grand, Grand Glorious
Day and Advocating Reform not Dialogue.
Brinkman's Sleepy Whale poems follow Irish lore, as James Joyce
Ulysses. Here are four more: Sleepy Whale 338 through to
Sleepy Whale 341.
A mighty fine selection once again I think.

I'm off to do a rain-dance now.
Winamop was conceived on a
whim, is run on a shoestring, ignored by the many, loved by the few and has
continued unabashed since 2003.
