tsena, poet

Are you following tsena’s blog, succumbing?

tsena is a very talented poet. I love her poems: they are marked by deep honesty, great images, and wonderful word choice and musicality.

One of my favorite poems by tsena is “fireweed”–read it here.

Don’t tell her I said so (I may get in trouble), but tsena is extraordinary and has exceptionally compelling stories to share. Her prose piece “what is so very cool about me” is stunning. Read it here.

Follow succumbing here.

Blessings to tsena and all, Andy

    I just started following Tsena tonight! She said she found me through this blog, Andy. Must have been a comment I made. And I think I started following your blog some time ago through Jennifer’s blog. Honestly with all the fluff and stuff to wade through online, it’s good to have met you amazing writers here. Thank you for the rewarding experience of reading your work, each of you!

    • That’s most excellent–Tsena is an amazing poet. I hope you enjoy her poetry as much as I do.
      Wow–thank you very much for your comments! I appreciate what you’ve written here.
      Jennifer, Tsena, and I have started a “Patchwork Poetry Writing Month” today. We’ll write 28 to 31 poems from now through the end of October. We’ll be posting some of our poems on our respective blogs.
      I’m enjoying reading your posts. It is awesome that you’ll be reading at the Pennsylvania State Capital.
      Thanks again! Sincerely, and best wishes, Andy

        Thank you for the kind comments. Best to you on your collective project! I’ll be watching your blogs to see the good stuff that comes out of it. 🙂 Very pleased to meet you, after following you for a while.
