Poetry anyone?

  • On the advice of D. S. Martin (and moi) get yourself a copy of Barbara Colebrook Peace's Duet for Wings and Earth. Wonderful Christmas poems!! (see The Word Guild Blog for reviews).
  • I write a monthly Poet's Classroom column at Utmost. December's column, "Short" is on writing poems of five lines. (Covers tanka, cinquain and limericks).  All P.C. columns are linked here.
  • Am also doing a little happy dance today because my poem "Forest Usurper" won an Honorable Mention in Utmost's Canadian contest (topic prompter - a picture of a forest fire). The winning poems are all linked here (1st and 2nd place poems are so good - don't know how I squeaked into the winner's circle).
