Festival 35 is in full bloom

It’s May Day — or Beltane, if you prefer. We’re celebrating with a special Blossoming Trees edition of the Festival of the Trees. “Beltane was originally a fertility festival,” our hostess Peg points out, “and what better inspiration for love and romance than a trees festooned in delicate, fragrant blossoms?”

About Dave Bonta

I'm the author of several books of poetry, including Ice Mountain: An Elegy, Breakdown: Banjo Poems, and Odes to Tools, but my real work is at my long-running literary blog Via Negativa, where I'm currently creating erasure poems from every entry of the Diary of Samuel Pepys. I'm also the editor and publisher of Moving Poems, a blog showcasing the best poetry videos on the web.
