This blog is a place for my poetry. I don’t work professionally as a writer; I’m a public school teacher in California. Writing is my avocation. I’m generally prolific during April, which is National Poetry Month. And in November, I participate in National Novel Writing Month. I have also participated in Camp NaNoWriMo.
I started this blog mid-April 2011 during National Poetry Month as a mirror to my original blog, also titled Sadly Waiting for Recess at Blogspot, which I am no longer updating. However, you will find more of my poems there, as I had been posting there for quite some time.
I am excited about a new poetry writing project that I am participating in, which is PoMoSco, sponsored by The Found Poetry Review.
On August 2, 2011, my poem “Priorities” was chosen by Robert Lloyd as Poem of the Week at Poets United.
