Today I updated my index of titles, titles of poems and/or chapbooks which I wrote between late 2012 and early 2014. Because I attend a local poetry group which meets every week, I’m on a schedule to write 52 poems per year. The update below includes about 90 titles. Since 2000, I’ve written more than 400 poems.

In his highly commendable book, The Craft of Revision, author Donald M. Murray reports that, “As a full-time writer, I try to write — and that’s writing, not staring out the window, planning, editing — two hours a day.” (page 47-48)
My New Year’s resolution is to write poetry for two hours per day.
HAPPY NEW YEAR TO YOU!
On this last day of 2013, I finished reading the book, How to Read A Chinese Poem: A Bilingual Anthology of Tang Poetry, translated and annotated by Edward C. Chang. Here’s a gem of a definition from page 4: “… the Chinese character that means poetry … (shi) … is composed of two parts: … “feelings in the heart” … ”words or speech.”
May your New Year 2014 be filled with “speech of the heart.”
Recently my husband and I celebrated our 25th wedding anniversary.
My gift to him was an album of the countless cards — Valentine’s Day, anniversary, birthday, Mother’s Day — which he has designed and handmade for me.
For each card he wrote a love poem. I am now encouraging him to publish a collection of love poems.
