I hope your poeming is going well.  I got some poems, not as many as I'd like, but some, anyways.  And there's always next month, right?


Don't forget to enter the big poetry giveaway!  Comment here for my giveaway and check out the list over at Kelli's blog.  There are so many poets giving great books away you've got a great chance at getting something.






Bird-Language
Trying to understand the words
        Uttered on all sides by birds,

W. H. Auden
