POETRY MONDAY: September 5, 2016

john guzlowski

Good morning, everyone, and welcome to the climax of Labor Day weekend and the beginning of what already seems like fall here in the Northeastern part of the U.S.

Many of you were impressed with the work of John Guzlowski, our featured poet in April of this year. He has devoted a large part of his life and career to writing and speaking about the experiences of his Roman Catholic parents, who were taken as slave laborers by the Nazis and barely survived. Both he and his sister were born in Displaced Persons camps. There could not be a better time to re-consider those events than the present, during the heat of our own political campaign, which has kept alive the burning topic of how the world should treat refugees from war-torn regions. Please go back to our archive first to re-read some of John’s strong poems and information about his latest book, Echoes of Tattered Tongues (AQUA POLONICA, LTD., 2016), and then take the time to watch the video below, which he has been kind enough to share with us.
