Poetry: Sakura



Founded in 1995, Thin Air Magazine is an American non-profit literary magazine. Located at 7,000 feet, at the base of the San Francisco Peaks in Flagstaff, Arizona, Thin Air is the highest-elevation literary journal in the United States.

Twenty six years after the first issue, we still can’t forget these words from our founders: “All too often, the literary world takes itself too seriously… Thin Air hopes to change that.”

The print issue of Thin Air is published annually in the spring, while content also appears all year round at Thin Air Online from artists and writers all over the world, including Sakura, a new poem by J H Martin, which you can read for free here.

As Thin Air is funded by a combination of subscriptions, donations, and grants, please consider subscribing, purchasing a back issue, or donating. It would help a lot. Thank you.
