Is there perfection
in every flower that blooms
opening with love?
You are my precious flower,
so perfectly imperfect.
in January of this year, i received an invitation to participate in Jingle Poetry's Poetry Potluck, which is held on Mondays. interestingly enough, it was shortly after i came across them in another's (who i can no longer remember) blog. i jumped in feet first on 1/11/11 with 'winds of change'. within the same week, i found myself also partaking in Thursday Poets Rally (week 37). since, i have participated in seven potlucks and rally week 38.
what i have found most enjoyable, beyond the added inspiration, is reading other poets' works. i have seen some wonderful talent that has truly spoken to me and love the opportunity to see their take on the same theme. i have also found that joining these two events has helped me to fulfill a new year's rule and brave the stress induces task of writing and leaving comments (something i have expressed in the past as being excruciatingly hard for me).
so i'd like to take this opportunity to thank Jingle for inviting me to participate as well as those wonderful writers out there who bravely share their works, thoughts and ideas.
now comes the next to impossible part...nominating one individual for the You are a Perfect Poet Award...did i mention i'm horrible at making decisions...hmmm...
