Vol 2 NO 4 - Find Your Tribe
I suppose it would be hard think of  writing poetry without the existence of some community. Unless we are reclusive writers who show no one our work and shove it away inside a drawer. The tree of Muses came out of the deck to me today and I have noticed th...

Confession Tuesday - Silas Left The House Edition.
Dear Reader: It has been one motherfucking rainy week since my last confession. Surprisingly the sky was beautiful today and no rain to be found. I think it figures back into the forecast in a day or two. <sigh> I have a whole host of things swirling in my ...

Vol 2 No 3 - Ace of Quills -
Once again, the Quill suit has come up for a second time in a row.  I'm hearing the word new. Maybe new project or new commitment.  Presently I have some ongoing projects that I don't devote enough focused time to keep the excitement going. I tend to drift ...

Vol. 2 No. 2 - Six of Quills - Sharing the Good Times
I'm late posting this, but on Sunday I drew a new card from the Poet Tarot deck. The card was the Six of Quills. You might note the card on the left has a lady standing in what appears to be a trophy cup. I think what this lady is saying to us is that in ou...

Confession Tuesday: Self-Conscious Edition
Dear Reader: It has been two weeks since my last Confession. One week in which I fought the intermittent rains to be both front and back jungles mowed. And a second week that has been more akin to nearly non-stop rain save today. I feel a bit like I've been...

How we observe as poets...
No one knows the burden I carry,/this being born with a Ouija Board in my chest, this ability/to read wreckage like an alphabet. You just see a car on its side/and the on the pavement. I see narration.                                                        ...

Confession Tuesday - The Glory of Books Edition
Dear Reader: It's been a week since my last confession. As we get older weeks come and go. It's a fact. Well, it always has been but I do think they seem to zip by these days.  So I get done with one confession and I'm back again and saying to myself, "How ...

And The Winners Are....
April has come and gone. Hopefully, you were nourished by a daily supply of poetry.  But poetry is not just for April. I've drawn names from entries in my Poetry Month Drawing, using a random number generator and I am happy to announce that two persons will...
