About Sundays

Hi everyone,

I’m going to change the routine on Sunday posting. After putting up one of my published poems every Sunday since the blog began in October 2009, I’m going to dispense with the custom and go with your poems instead. By rough estimate I’d say that Kathy Temean has shared about 150 of my poems. There are plenty more, but I think it’s time to turn the floor over to the many talented writers who frequent this site. I’ve asked Kathy to post a few more of my poems from COWBOYS and GOOSE LAKE, but starting this Sunday I’m inviting you to add your own poems to my post — any style on any subject. All you have to do is e-mail them to me at the address provided on my website. I’ll look forward to featuring one or more of them on the next available Sunday. Sound like a plan? I hope so!

Meanwhile, the fun continues at Renee La Tulippe’s blog. We had so much fun the first two days on NO WATER RIVER that I want to urge you to click over to join the conversation or merely to read the interview or hear the poem (from COWBOYS). Here’s the link: http://www.nowaterriver.com/poetry-monday-cookie-by-david-l-harrison . Renee is doing something unique by collecting 3-minute videos of poets reading from their work. Whether you are a poet seeking the sound of other poets’ voices, a teacher looking for a wonderful resource for your poetry unit, or young readers who want to learn more about some of their favorite poets, I recommend Renee’s site to one and all.

  1. That’s a great plan, David! Know what else you could do? Put your Sunday link on the following Poetry Friday list. That’s what I do with my Monday posts. It’s a great group, as you probably know. If you look in my blog sidebar, you’ll see the schedule of who’s hosting when (I’m actually hosting next Friday, the 21st). I’ll send you a ditty when the dust settles. 🙂

    • Thanks, Renee! I keep forgetting about these other options even though I’m aware that many people enjoy using them. I’ll put this on my short-term list of things to get done!

    • Good morning, Julie!
      Sorry I didn’t get to answer everyone yesterday. One of those days! Anyway, many thanks and delighted that you came by. Isn’t Renee great?

  2. What a generous thing to do. Sounds fun! BTW I was telling my son (age 7) about your praying mantis vs. hummingbird incident. His ninja secret identity is ‘Praying Mantis’ — but he now claims to be a vegetarian praying mantis. 🙂

    • Hi Carrie,

      Thank you very much for joining me here. Please tell your son that vegetarian praying mantises are extremely rare and they’re the bravest of all.
