An earlier rendition of this poem was in Boston Poetry Magazine some time ago. It's one of the poems I read during the Somerset Poetry Group meeting last Tuesday.

Robert Bly's "Wanting Sumptuous Heavens" is one of my absolute favorite poems. It's the poem of the day from The Poetry Foundation's daily poem podcast. Enjoy! #poetry #poetryoutloud #poetryreading

The Somerset Poetry Group meets this evening at 7 p.m. at the Bridgewater Public Library. I'll be reading Hymenoptera, Headlong and Farthing (https://bostonpoetry.wordpress.com/2013/06/07/headlong-farthing/) , a cinquain, and one or two other drafts in progress. This marks only the second time I've ever read aloud in public. I'm also looking forward to hearing other terrific voices from New Jersey. #poetry #njpoetry   #library

Hello. I just updated my blog to the custom Google + URL. But when I tried to do the same for my profile, it asked to verify using my cell phone number to text me. I do not use texting, Internet, or email on my phone. Is there an alternate method of verification? Thank you.

Nicole,
I only suggest you- be your self critic. Ask self why this has been rejected or ask them who rejected it. May be soul is missing. Soul-less work will not be accepted.

Have you seen this young lady? She has an amazing mind, and a tremendous future ahead of her. I love listening to young people discuss poetry and the process of their art. Enjoy!

Story
Tagline
I write poetry and fiction. I read to sate myself. Books are food. And I am one hell of a glutton.
Introduction
I work as a freelance writer. The decision was a big deal, because even though I've written most of my life, I never shared it with anyone. Now, I'm stepping out, and little by little, people are reading my work. I want to do more, and just see what happens.
Bragging rights
I can still laugh at life, in spite of myself.
