Poet Portraits & Saturday Thoughts



Sylvia Plath

Poet Portraits--
One of my favorite things to do is look at photos of poets who are only with us in words.

These portraits offer brief glimpses into lives I wasn't around to see.  I especially love coming across a photo of a poet I have never seen before.  Like the one above, Miss Sylvia Plath.  Hair up and out on the water.

She was one of my favorites whose stay here on earth was just not long enough.

I hope to post a few more of my favorite poets throughout April.  Maybe they'll inspire a poem.  Maybe a passion.

It's April 3rd, do you know where your poems are?

I do and I've written 3 new "poems."  I have poems in quotes because they are not very good, but they are beginnings.  How is everyone else doing?

congrats on being #8! I don't think my blog has ever made it onto any list :) hehe

I've made it through three poem revisions (since I'm revising instead of writing new) with one poem turning into a flash fiction piece and the other two might be keepers...might
