From Simply Haiku – Jack Galmitz was born in New York City in 1951. His poems, haiku and free verse, have appeared in publications worldwide.
In the Introduction, Brendan Slater writes: “Yellow Light carves its way through Galmitz’s own mental illness. It is honest, brave and original, and speaks for everyone who is struggling with mental illness. It says: we are not alone, and after the darkness, somewhere in place, somewhere in time, there will be light.”
A brick wall raining
walked by the dog
from my skull antlers grow in the snow
A man and woman magnetize evening
