I received 33 addresses for the August postcard poetry project. These senryu were my poems for September 1, 2012. I used a contemporary card view of Frisco Mountain, Lyall Glacier, waterfall and Rainy Lake. I mailed the postcard to Julie of University Park, Pennsylvania.
Blessings to Julie and all, Andy
HA! “Well-wishers”–nice one. : -D
LOLOL Thank you Jennifer–these still make me laugh. : -D too
i have to be a total poet-snot-snob-beggar and mention my piece about fishing, would you read and comment? your piece reminded me of one i had written long ago and posted here: http://succumbing.wordpress.com/2012/06/16/baited-2/
You’re a total poet; you’re NOT a “snot-snob-beggar”! Now I’ve read TWO of your pieces on fishing. You read one of the two at CSWT; it was most excellent.
Thank you for asking. Absolutely, I’ll reread the poem at your link and comment.
Stay tuned! With warm regards, Andy
haha, you make me feel like my work is polished and well-put; thank you.
Tsena, I really admire your poetry. I particularly admire your word choice and images.
Take a poem like “fireweed.”
So, the trick is to work on your poem to the point where you like it and consider it “finished” OR you have it at a point where you’re ready to send it out into the world. That’s when you research your markets and send it out–preferably in a set.
I’m delighted that you’re sending your poems out. Keep at it! I look forward to hearing some good news from you!
