on something
on to something
through deep thought
some things
go better with coaching
sweet nothings
some things
go better with coaxing
sweet somethings
deep thoughts
of her and me

Andrew Shattuck McBride


“something” is my August 11th poem for the postcard poetry project. I used a contemporary card of Lake Ann, North Cascades. I mailed the card to Jeremy in New Germany, Minnesota.

Blessings to Jeremy and all, Andy

    well, you have become a posting maniac! i will never get my work done now. 🙂 really like this piece…can you send me the info about the poetry post card project? i would like to reblog this piece and let other bloggers know about the project. and of course, participate!

  2. LOL
    Well, I have these postcard poems–nearly half a month’s worth already. After talking with you and Jennifer the other night, I thought I could resume writing posts and use these. I’ve been trying to catch up. OK, no more posts from me today!
    Thank you–I like this too. I guess it’s my second favorite of these postcard poems so far.
    Sure, but the list is closed until next year’s postcard poetry project. I have an acquaintance who has participated five years in a row, and another friend who is participating for at least her second year in a row.
    I’ll email you a link.
    Blessings, Andy
    P.S. OK–back to work!

  3. tsena, I just sent you a link to the postcard project, via email.

  4. Well. Those other poems that I said were my favorites? I just hadn’t read THIS one yet.
