National Poetry Month, day 7

It's day seven, and I have seven poems--how about you?

    Hi, Carrie. Calling in seven, and counting, from West Lafayette, Indiana, still closest participant to Normal, Illinois. Another I-state connection: one of your prose poems and a trio of my poems are neighbors in the just-out issue of Iowa Review.

  2. I've decided to approach NaPoWriMo as a revision exercise. I'm taking a bunch of old crap and seeing if I can turn it into something interesting. Which can sometimes mean writing a completely new poem.
    But not yet.

    Woke with two lovely lines,
    of what may evolve into haiku.

  4. Mary, thanks for pointing out our poems next to one another in Iowa Review--I love "Patronymic"--a tremendous piece.

    Cat, that sounds like a good plan. I might do that to catch up, as I'm now a couple days behind on account of a cold.

    Cynthia, thanks for reminding me of haiku. Years ago I wrote haiku and senryu regularly and keep meaning to write them more often.

    Keep up the good work!

    Well, I'm managing to keep pace with a carpet bag full of poetic quackery, more than anything else, I suspect: placebos and palliatives, rather than effective active agents. But I still have faith that the daily dose must somehow be doing me good; guess we shall see! :))
