Poetry Everyday of the Year (and more)

The rules are simple. 1) Send me a poem and if I approve it (most likely) I will print it. I will also print my poems (which are copyrighted.) 2) If I print your poem you will retain all rights to the poem. I will also delete your poem if you sell it to a publisher who wants exclusive rights. 3) If I print your poem, I will send you an email telling you what day. (So you can tell everyone). This is a poet friendly site. (enjoy)

Not So Plain Plein-Air Outing

purple petunia bedecked
in royal gown with lacy hem
tiny dark veins embroider
the soft lavender petal
a painter’s delight, indeed

yet, I’m deterred from
my mission as
whirlybirds swirl, landing
in my hair soon joined by ants
who crawl up my legs
in steady formation.

bug species unidentified
saunter bravely on my paper
adding signature text to wet
paint, becoming martyrs
to my process
of painting outdoors.
