The Word of the Month Word for October is . . .

Hi everyone,

Today we start the 4th quarter of 2021! For those who live where there are seasons, it’s time to transition from the last of the growing season into the first signs of winter. To mark the occasion, let’s use CHANGE for our October word challenge. I’ll be waiting to see what you will do with it and will add my own effort when I can.

In September you posted some delightful poems using LIGHT as your inspiration. Thank you all for joining the monthly exercise and adding your voices to the chorus. Over the years, a number of emerging poets have posted here and made steady progress in perfecting their skills. My thanks as well to the old pros who have routinely posted such wonderful models. I love the culture that has developed here during these past twelve years. Thank you so much for being part of it.
