Invitation to join a workshop is still open

I will be running a workshop . Ever read a poem and you felt as if you were walking with the writer as he told his/her tale? or read a poem and you felt disconnected from the poem? The difference between the two is in the first the poet knew how to "immerse" the reader in his/her poem. One way to do this is the effective use of imagery.We will be exploring how to use imagery to bring the reader into your poem. Sign up begins today. For more detail just hit the workshop tab and review. Then come back here and let me know you want in.

August contest winner

Please join me in congratulating B9Pat for winning the August contest for her poem "Worthwhile". Her is her winning entry:

Worthwhile
Remember me
When you go to bed
With thoughts of me
Running through your head
Think back to the day
When we were wed
So many things left unsaid
While looking back try to smile
Wasn't it all worthwhile
Wasn't it all worthwhile

Lyrics as poetry

"My Girl"

I've got sunshine on a cloudy day
When it's cold outside I've got the month of May

I guess you'd say
What can make me feel this way?
My girl (my girl, my girl)
Talkin' 'bout my girl (my girl)

I've got so much honey the bees envy me
I've got a sweeter song than the birds in the trees

Well, I guess you'd say
What can make me feel this way?
My girl (my girl, my girl)
Talkin' 'bout my girl (my girl)

When I Am Asked
By: Lisel Mueller

When I am asked
how I began writing poems,
I talk about the indifference of nature.

It was soon after my mother died,
a brilliant June day,
everything blooming.
