warmth on a cold day sweaters and blankets from thrift stores
warmth on a cold day books and poetry journals on shelves and a new book on the kitchen table from yesterday’s mail
One of the nice aspects of blogging is that I’ve learned of books by poets that are not always sold in stores – and we only have a few bookstores in our area. I also have ordered books recommended by notes and reviews in poetry print journals. Time Of Singing and WestWard Quarterly are two examples. Both journals have published poems from my blogs, and I am grateful. All works together.
I no longer review books, yet am grateful every day for the books on my shelves and by my chair. It is nice to have interests – blogs and books – that I know can stay with me through the years. When I have not been able to read, my heart has been full.
