Garden Tending

June 7, 2014

Copy of Egypt-20120418-00516I am finding myself again feeling honored and privileged among a host of poets and writers much better than I.

If you have followed Poetic Bloomings at all you might have noticed that for some time Walt Wojtanik has invited frequent contributors to help him demonstrate the prompts for the topic poem and InForm poem of the week. Those hosts and hostesses have led the way with examples of imaginative responses, and their introductions explain the reasons by way of experience for quality poetry that results.
I will be Walt’s guest host this week. I don’t have the experience, publishing history, or disciplined practice and long-nurtured expertise that some of our leaders at PB have had.
But I do have the passion.
In fact, it was Poetic Bloomings that reignited my passion for poetry in the last several years, and has begun a process of nurture and affirmation that I am profoundly grateful for.
Come by and you will see what I mean. Each poet brings inspiration and insight to the garden. I’m excited to be there this week in turn tending to many who have tended so well to me.
