PoMoSco Day 9

Today’s poem: local pianist

I am posting very late today. I usually schedule my poem for posting the night before, but my son highjacked my laptop for a homework assignment last night. (I’m a teacher, so I really can’t complain, but grumble grumble grumble.) This gives me time to read a few poems in the morning before work and then prepare a post here on my blog. This morning, I managed to get my poem posted before I left for work, but I had no time to read anyone else’s poems.

Thanks to Margo Roby for reading my poem and leaving a comment. She was even kind enough to link to my poem on her blog post for today: PoMoSco Day 9, along with a complimentary comment. Margo is awesome: a talented poet and a first-rate person. Though we’ve never met in person, I count her a friend; and I am grateful to her for introducing me to PoMoSco. As anyone who follows this blog knows, there was a poetry drought there for a while, and now the water is flowing. I cannot adequately express my gratitude to Margo for inspiring me to write poetry again.

Not surprisingly, I think you should go read Margo’s poem: For Power: For Themselves; she’s too hard on her own poetry. I also recommend the following: all the American efforts to build a better world by james w. moore, To See Anything by Scott Wiggerman, And So by Misky Braendeholm, Two sonnets in turns by Daniel Ari, and Private Lives by Barbara Crary.

  1. Richard, thank you. As I count you as a friend, I’m glad to hear it’s mutual. You will find the poetry flows for quite a while. I have found this challenge jumpstarts something. Thus, if I am dry for a month, or so, I tell myself, April is coming.

    • Yes, I always look forward to April. We’ll see if I can maintain some more consistent writing when May rolls around. This April has been especially fruitful. And the most fun I’ve had writing poems in a long time. I’m really digging found poetry!
