Summer is here, according to the calendar. The weather is cool, but this is not unusual by Lake Michigan in Oostburg, this time of year.
When I began this blog, one of my goals was to give previously published poems a new life. I could not write some of these poems now, as my life has changed. It’s lovely to see that they are read by others. I still like many of my old poems, which were GIFTS. It’s great to see, through your feedback, which poems are meant to last.
Of course, if something we write helps someone somewhere, that’s what matters. The stats are interesting and helpful, but much remains a wonderful mystery!
Another goal was to credit the editors and print journals who published my work, beginning over 20 years ago. It is still wonderful to be accepted and always good to say “thank you” again. It amazes me the technical skills I am learning, with WordPress. I am not known for self-confidence in this area.
Not sure where my poetry is going now, but summer is a good time to renew. I’ll post as my heart leads and read your blogs too! Thank you.
I love these free samples from my Dover Design Sampler this week, sent by Mary Davis.
