This month's theme produced many interpretations of Journeys and Arrivals. The poems presented a challenge for selection, especially as the quality and style of poetry was so high and the interpretations so various. The most common were that of physical journey and that of a journey through life. To accommodate the two themes I decided to edit the October Snakeskin as two sections: Physical Journeys and Life Journeys. I hope you enjoy this selection.
