Vox Populi

A Public Sphere for Poetry, Politics, and Nature

A Message to Vox Populi Subscribers

Dear faithful and patient subscribers to Vox Populi:

We’ve had some tech problems here at Vox Populi plaza. First our connection to the server went down yesterday due to Verizon installing new lines on our street. Then when our devices went back online, the website sent out random posts that were scheduled for the next week.

So, instead of your usual two posts today, you’ve received… wait for it… EIGHT POSTS!

Strangely, Verizon sent out poetry by women and science by men… hmmm. Could the seemingly random universe actually be guilty of gender stereotyping?

Anyway…

There are wonderful poems by Miriam Levine, Yana Djin, Sally Bliumis-Dunn, Laure-Anne Bosselaar, Betsy Romero, and Connie Post. And there are also two brilliant science posts: an article about how rising seas will displace millions of people on the coasts in coming years; and a video of a year in the life of the earth photographed from geostationary orbit.

I hope you will enjoy this surfeit of beauty (and terror) brought to you today by Vox Populi and Verizon. So far, it’s been an unusual but productive partnership. And somewhat random.

And, as always, thank you for your continued support of this wacky project of bringing poetry, politics and nature to everyone everywhere for free.

Warmly,

Michael Simms, editor, founder and chief technologist at Vox Populi

    It was an embarassment of riches.

    I just felt you were providing oxygen at a time we were all feeling suffocated. Thank you!

    Thanks for the explanation. I, for one, am grateful for the abundance of riches.

      Well, in my long life, I’ve kind of specialized in goof-ups.

    Amen to all of the above. Thanks, Mike!
    Btw, Elizabeth, we’ve never met, but I found today’s poem very moving.
    And Noel, I share your pain (and relief.)

    I am an old woman and have despaired of anyone ever “getting” me. But you do, and it means more than I can say.

    No worries, Vox Populi is one of my favorite things in life – eight posts is just what I need after the elections (in Israel) to remind me of integrity, beauty, organic poets and wise minds.
