National Poetry Month -- Poem a Day etc. Con't

Something wrong with my laptop -- bummer, won't load my blog.  Plus my e key is gone.  Amazing how many words with eees in them.

I'm writing a poem a day and contemplating if I should post them here or not.  So far it is a not.  There is something comforting about only sharing them with the small group.  Maybe something will come of these poems.  Last years batch wasn't so good but the year before produced much of the work included in my upcoming book which I really need to get back to for the second editing process.  The publisher is waiting.  I'm probably delaying on purpose.

Tomorrow maybe I'll write something about you.  I'm not good at this stuff.

Here is my friend Bohb.  He's an artist:

National Poetry Month -- Poem a Day etc.

Well I am writing -- my lap top seems to have a bug.  Blogger doesn't load -- it says it is going to but then I get a blank screen.  So I'm on an old mac-mini desk top.  How strange.

Easter Sunday.  I do love all the symbolism of Easter -- Pesakah -- all the pre-Christian paganism and Jewish ties to the fertility season.  I saw a photo on MSNBC of young boys throwing water on young girls in Hungary -- they were dressed in their traditional folk costumes.  It was a pre-Christian tradition.  Of course it has to do with fertility.

Americans don't really have that sort of stuff.  We have other things though -- like Peeps.  If I get anything written worthy of sharing with you, I will.  As of now, it is mostly bad.

Happy Eastertide.
