Happy Book Birthday to The Joy of Poetry!
Since my first two books with poetry were released in April, for National Poetry Month, and since this April I was celebrating at the Crossroads, an art show at the junction of painting and poetry, I am now turning my attention to book birthdays. This month … it’s Happy 7th Birthday to The Joy of Poetry!
During May I am posting audio of me reading some of my poems from The Joy of Poetry over at my Soundcloud. I begin with one titled “Cutthroat,” about fishing for trout with my parents in Creede, Colorado, near the mouth of the Rio Grande.
Poetry for Life and a Giveaway
If you’d like to be in a drawing for a giveaway of The Joy of Poetry at the end of the month, then hop on over to Poetry for Life, my Substack, and subscribe. All new subscribers in May get two chances to win instead of just one.
I loved this book. As soon as I finished, I began reading it again.”
