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.

Hi everyone,

Sometime this week my blog will register visitor number 100,000. Most visitors don’t leave comments but I want to make it more appealing for those who do. When the meter hits 100,000, I’ll send an autographed book to the person whose comment is registered closest to that moment.

Thanks to everyone who continues to stop by to see what’s going on and maybe leave a thought or a poem for others to enjoy. I’m very proud of the way you have accepted my blog into your routines and am especially appreciative during this period when my writing commitments have made it necessary to back away from posting daily. You are more than picking up the slack!

I’ll be back before long

Hi everyone,

As I announced on August 2, I’m buried under book deadlines and have made the painful decision to step back from blogging on a daily basis, at least for now. I’ll be here and will post occasionally, but at least for a few weeks I must keep my head down and write.

Word of the Month challenge goes right on. The word for August is HOT. I hope to see lots of good poetry spin off that enticing word. I know that readers and visitors here will continue to enjoy the work of other poets and support them with their comments.

Kathy Temean will also continue her practice of posting one of my previously published poems each Sunday and now and then I’ll bring you a Featured Guest. If Sandy Asher and I decide to restart WRITERS AT WORK, I’ll post those comments as before. And don’t forget that I’ve been posting almost every day since October 2009 so there’s a large body of previous posts you might like to browse.

To access previous posts, scroll to the bottom of the screen to CATEGORIES. Everything below that is in red. Click on any of them and they’ll take you where you want to go.

My thanks to everyone who has signed the guest book on my website. I appreciate it very much. If anyone else would like to sign, just go to my site at http://wwwdavidlharrison.com. and open the Guest Book section. While you’re there I hope you’ll look around my website. Kathy Temean did a beautiful job of creating it.

Thanks for being patient with me and understanding that, in the end, a writer has to write.

All best to everyone,

David
