BULLETIN: My friend Susan Patterson Hutchens pitched in her first effort for WORD OF THE MONTH, just as the month ended and the whole slate got wiped clean to make way for February. Susan, I am so sorry that no one had a chance to read your poem. Please post it again and I’ll leave it up to give others time to appreciate your contribution. Thanks!
Can it be February? Sigh. Can anyone slow this thing down?
Might as well make the most of it and write a poem. And the word for this month, taken from those that were proposed when we were searching for a December word, is CANDLE. That ought to light your imagination so let’s see what you can do with it.
