Checking in

After a much-needed break, I’m back in the blogosphere with nothing on my mind but poetry. This break reminded me how much I enjoy being Poet Mom and running this blog. Lots of busy work going on behind the scenes here, here, and here on a project to keep the poetry love thang going once Poetry Thursday shuts down.


If you have been waiting for one of my extra-special poetry postcards, wait no more. Check your mailboxes this week for a special delivery from yours truly. Admittedly, I freaked out when I had to write so many new poems. And the ones I did mail came back returned (I really shouldn’t put my return address on a postcard.). If you’d like to receive a postcard in September, e-mail me at for more information.

I am bursting at the seams with all things poetry, so hold onto your hats—September will be a busy month.

Stay tuned.

I'm so sad about the ending of Poetry Thursday! Looking forward to seeing what's next in poetry-internet-land. Enjoy the last of summer, January.

Bug, I'm bummed about Poetry Thusrday, too. But the new project will keep that same community feeling--we hope. Thanks for the encouragement.

And we'll definitely have brunch in September.

I am certainly going to miss Poetry Thursday. I have only recently discovered it and regret that I did not get an opportunity to participate in this wonderful poetic community.

How about a postcard in October? - since I'll be busy trying to see everything there is to see in England and Scotland for all of September. I'm sure that will lead to a few new poems.
I may just e-mail you about it when I get back
