Welcome to Poetry, Etc.
Welcome poetry lovers and curious souls (ha, ha … didn’t you know you can’t write “souls” in poetry, or “soul” they say)! Welcome to my new poetry blog at Illinois Times. I’ll be writing about all things poetry including what I find poetic in life. If it weren’t so hokey I would have named this blog The Poetry in Everything. For me, much in life is six degrees or less away from verse.Watch out, I tend to think in positives. Hope you’re up for that math.
Something you really might enjoy about this blog –- each week I’ll feature a poem that I found or one that you, Joe or Jane Public has emailed me. Email to firstname.lastname@example.org with “WriteIT” in the subject line. Maybe I’ll post these on Wednesdays. There’s some alliteration for ya. WriteIt Wednesdays!
I’ll also feature weekly something in central Illinois or the world that I think deserves mentioning because it’s so awesome or fantastic. It’s poetry to me if it helps others, makes the world a better place, inspires or instructs or like good poetry, makes sense and touches me deeply.
