New Year’s Day and a pomegranate. 

All those marvelous seeds like so many possibilities.

And if they don’t all come to pass, well, 

they are still tangy sweet and delicious.

MKE TODAY

 

In the last of the afternoon daylight, the lake beyond the breakwater is ruddy, muscular, pushing against the rocks holding it back, sometimes splashing over them.  Inside the breakwater, it pales.

MKE TODAY


The geese are gone.

Two children and two grown-ups climb the rocks.

A long-legged dog runs circles on the beach

around her three dog walkers,

and the lake is dimple-dancing blue.

Writer of the Day: Ambrose P. Dietz, Editor, For Our Boys, 1879

 

“A condition in which the individual should never have any benefit to expect from the collective store or reserve of the community, and should himself have to provide, under all circumstances of adversity, for the afflictions and infirmities of his body, would no longer be a social condition, but a savage state.”

What's a Poet to Do?


Not sequester yourself in a tiny corner of an unheated attic! 


Word weaver, the world needs to hear what you craft.  So do your neighbors, friends, relatives, the people across town, and those across the river, pond, lake, stream, and ocean.


Poet Frank X. Walker says,  "a good poet, especially if she is a capable reader, can summon the power of the stage and the screen onto the page."   Want to hear more of his insightful views? Check out his interview originally published in Verse Wisconsin, now widely available in the Cowfeather Press anthology, local ground(s).
