Last night I put brats on the grill and we enjoyed them with potato salad by the lake at twilight. Can’t seem to get around to eating any earlier and now the nights are definitely shorter.
I’m delighted by these second DOG poems being posted. Some are even better than the first ones! Yesterday, purely as an exercise, I chose a word and began listing ideas that spun off that word. I haven’t finished yet but my list quickly grew to 25. I could literally write a book inspired by that one word. Mine only had four letters in it.
For years the guideline for W.O.M. has been to post only one poem per month. That made sense when we used to vote on the poems at the end of the month and choose a winner. Now I’m thinking that there may not be a reason to limit poets who want to post more than one poem based on the same word.
September is at hand. Should we change the rules? Let me know your thoughts.
