Honored and Humbled both start with H

February 2, 2013

What a sweet, humbling honor it was for one of my poems to be chosen for this week’s Poetic Bloomings selection. ‘Kingfisher’ was my first contribution last week, and I followed it up with a comical nod to that bird we love maybe the most, with ‘I Am Chicken.’

If you haven’t visited this site, you must.  There were 52 submissions and 440 comments on those 52 pieces of brilliance.  The prompt this last week was ‘Birds’ and it evoked quite a response among the contributors.  Walt and Marie, the site creators, are angels in the poetry world, nurturing and encouraging so many writers.

I would post my poem here, but I’d much rather you go to the site at Poetic Bloomings and read all the great birds-eye views of the wonderful flying creatures in our world that are posted there.

Click the link in this post, or the link in my sidebar. Hope you enjoy these musings, I certainly did.

    You’re a peach! And we sure are thankful to count you as one of our “Bloomers.” 😉
