Spring 2013

Letter from the Editor

 

You can cut all the flowers but you cannot keep Spring from coming.
– Pablo Neruda

For some, Spring is a time for new beginnings, for blinking in warm light and tilling the earth, for moving forward. For others, Spring is a time of recovery, of escaping Winter’s cold wrap, of running away. Equinox is flight and charge, exodus and embrace. It is looking forward with fresh perspective of perseverance. Sunshine and shadow share control for a single day as one relinquishes to the other – light and dark bisect our lives before light begins to stretch. Balance both necessary and fleeting.

The Spring 2013 Issue of The Citron Review showcases a selective mix of work by writers walking the line, inhabiting that delicate, impossible, transitory balance. This issue comprises those things the season pulls from us and pushes us into – the shaping of childhood, the enormity of love gained or lost, the promise of something different – light and dark vying for ownership. These pages offer departure and arrival. Their writers fill the space between door knobs. They know the sound of seed casings cracking around the sprout. They put to words the movement we feel as the globe shifts its tilt.

Read. Listen. Attend to gravity. Breathe the changing winds.
