Poem a Day update

I missed some days, Nov. 6-9, but have now gone back and picked up Nov. 6 with a poem about "Coffee After Lunch." I plan to get current by the end of the week.

Piano practice (will I ever get back to where I was?) is going reasonably well, and I am at least playing a little bit each day.

I like a lot of the poems I'm writing this way. My favorite, so far, is "Out of Time," from November 14th.

I have moved all of the "Poem a Day" poems for November to The Art of the Moment. Enjoy!

Recent happenings

Decided not to do NaNoWriMo, this year. It's been a couple years since I joined in. I did, however, decide I'd try to write a poem a day during November. The first one, a haiku, I stuck on my photo blog at The next two are at, starting at "Alien Life," which is where I plan to put the rest of them.

I wrote a poem for the SFPA's 2009 On-line Halloween Poetry Reading. The audio file can be found toward the bottom of the Halloween page. I also wrote a poem, "At Allantide," for the 2007 reading; there are links at the top of the page to Halloween 2006-2008. The text for "Halloween at the End of the Universe" is also at

This has been a scattered summer and fall. Writing, dancing, playing piano...not spending nearly so much time on the Internet.
