Here’s the second Post in the series begun on October 13, 2010. Photos by Karl and poems by me.
in older age
from the sand
corn an inch tall
home from the city
the beautiful city
stars my skyline
for Milwaukee on a late summer night
“frost soon” —published in The TOP, The Tournament of Poetry, in 1995. This is the first haiku I can remember writing. I lost touch with this publication a long time ago, but am grateful to have been included.
“new poems”–I shared this poem with penpals last year and on this blog last December. The feedback I received encouraged me to focus more on my own writing again.
“gulls lifting”–Published in SMILE (2009, 2010) and Bell’s Letters Poet (2010). These two print journals included features common to blogs before I had ever heard the word “blog.” A variety of poems, by well-known poets and beginners alike, with a feeling of fellowship and conversation.
I always feel like I am just beginning. Thank you.
