Another Short Poetry Collection at Yay Words!

Aubrie Cox of Yay Words! has reached a one year anniversary of prompting and collecting themed poetry/art . . . Congratulations, Aubrie!  I’ve participated in a few, including this latest, and enjoyed all of them.  Take time to visit, peruse, and enjoy this latest offering from the sea.  Let it steal a few moments.  You’ll find some treasure; I have no doubt.


After some high winds and troubling waters, this collection has finally arrived. I don’t like when I have to delay things, but hopefully it will have been worth it. There’s a good helping of a bit of everything here—haiku, tanka, sequences, rengay, haibun, haiga, prose poems. It’s always a treat to see new people jump in, and regulars try new things.

As I was putting this collection together, it occurred to me that it’s nearly been a year since I started putting these PDF collaborations together on my blog, starting with the backlit fog at the end of September 2011. The last twelve months have been chaotic and full of change (some good, some not-so-good), and sometimes I’ve wondered why I do these collections. I don’t have time for them on top of everything else.

But at the end of the day, I realize I do them because they keep me sane (at least a little). I do them because I love the good-natured community of poets who gather around to participate, and I love good poetry, and I love to share. And I think everyone here does as well.
