Postcard Poems in August

I love these postcard poems, and the fact that I will have written 31 brand new poems by the end of the month – no easy feat that, getting me to work so much in such a short space of time. I’m very happy with the core poems that are appearing on the cards straight off my pen; some of them will need a little tweaking and become short poems but others will mix and match, blend into each other. This is a great habit to cultivate and I would love to continue, even if I don’t actually send the cards to anyone I’d like to collect them for myself – must find a nice box.

They have been slow in arriving, mostly because they are all coming from the US and Europe; I am the only one on my list from the UK. One has arrived with a typed patch stuck on the back, but maybe the poet has very bad handwriting and actually printed what she’d written straight off without editing; I’d like to believe that. So far I’ve only received one that I actively don’t like. Can’t wait for the post tomorrow.

  1. Yes, and an excuse to buy pretty stacking boxes! But is is hard to send away the pictures on the cards and not have copies, so I’ll re-buy some and keep them for myself after writing a new poem on them 🙂
