The prompt for July 22, 2013, written by michelle w., asks that we check the top 3 – 5 posts in our stats, and then reflect on why they are well-read, and what the connections might be.
I thought today I’d look at the BIG PICTURE, since December 2009. Please use the Search Feature (home page, upper right hand corner), if you wish to locate the specific posts. They also show up often in “Top Posts & Pages” (right sidebar).
The top three posts for “all time” are:
1. Home Page/Archives
2. Acrostic Poem for HARVEST – with quote from Psalm 126
3. Acrostic Poem for READING
Some additional observations:
Karl’s photos are popular – our beloved Lake Michigan and all the flowers.
Charles Waugaman’s Christmas poem, which I placed in the Pages (right sidebar) is well-read every week. This makes me happy. He was called Home in 2010, and this would please him. He was one of the very first editors to take my work seriously and publish it in Time of Singing. Lora Zill is the current editor of this print journal. http://www.timeofsinging.com
More recently, I can see readers are enjoying my short poems, prose about my story (everyone has a story), and new work with The Haiku Foundation (the detailed haiku lessons). Jim Kacian is the editor for this work, which includes many people. http://www.thehaikufoundation.org/the-haiku-foundation-education
Looking again at the TOP THREE, how much this reflects my life. I love language, reading and writing. Reading the Psalms has been my spiritual practice since the mid-1990s, and they were always a part of my life.
They that sow in tears
shall reap in joy.
Blessings and thank you,
