I don’t want this to be a site where I just publish my own poems, but a place to celebrate this literary art form that I (and presumably you) love so much. I plan to discuss different aspects of poetry, talk about both favorite and newly discovered poets, share my experience on writing and getting published, and introduce you to some invented poetry forms I have discovered, and even created.
Although I have been writing poetry for most of my life, and have published many prior blogs on a a variety of subjects (gargoyles, street art, vintage matchboxes, playing cards, etc.), this is my first attempt at combining both interests and creating a poetry blog.
I always thought of poetry as a form of play, so this blog is an invitation for you to join me and come play with some of my favorite toys: words and verse.
Hope to see you back soon!
