To end each post, there will be this call to share your own work. Whether it’s something that you write as soon as you finish reading this post, or it’s a poem you’ve posted or had published, place the whole poem in the comments or put a link to it. A brief description before the link will help me process comments faster, so I know they’re not spam.

Also, feel free to share links to poems or spoken word performances by other poets. I hope this month will bring a wide variety of poetry to everyone’s attention. Also, there will be posts on my author Facebook page, a link to which can be found on the right-hand side, that will include spoken word performances and links to work of other poets, which will not appear here.

      Always brightens my day when you stop by and comment. And yay! That’s a compliment for both Margaret and me. The formatting was her vision, and I made it a reality. It turned out so great. And I don’t even know how she came up with two poems to go down the sides and that could even be read straight across. It really is an impressive piece.
