Greeting

Hello Fellow Poets, I am watching the Democratic National Convention speeches at this moment and cannot think of another activity that reflects my interests.

Can’t Wait

Just wanted to introduce myself to you all. I am a fifty-odd year-old Creative Writing major and this is my first attempt at a poetry marathon. I hope that all of you get some inspiration from this challenge. May the words flow, and in the right order!

Hi.

Hello fellow marathoners! I’m just a girl who is obsessed with words and is a huge believer in the power that they hold. I have a weakness for reading aloud and tasting the words on my tongue. I love to sing, do yoga, and be spontaneous. Poetry is my passion….
