A Poem at Escape Into Life

Today is International Women's Day, and the international online arts magazine Escape Into Life is celebrating with poetry and gorgeous art by Artist Watch artist Pooja Campbell

The honored poets are Risa Denenberg, Rose Hunter, Angela Narciso Torres, Luisa A. Igloria. I am so pleased to note that I also share a bit of space with these wonderful writers. 

My poem "Free-Diving's Queen" is dedicated to Natalia Molchanova, a Russian champion free-diver and multiple world record holder who vanished on August 2, 2015, while teaching a free-diving course on an island near Ibiza, Spain. She was only 53 years old. In 2013, the extraordinary athlete became the only woman in her sport to break the 100-meter barrier.
