- Join Hands in a Circle of Poems! -
Poetry has always been an act of resilience over despair, for both writer and reader.
How heartening to know that interest in poetry is soaring these days!
Circle of Poems was inspired by the New Orleans poets who drag typewriters to the edge of the street,
offering custom poems to curious passersby in exchange for the cost of
an ice cream cone in an infinity of possible flavors.
Our Circle of Poems will be made of 360 poems, each a ray of a circle formed by you.
Tell me what you would like a poem about, by filling in the following form and offering a donation via Paypal.
You will receive a hand-written poem on Japanese paper by mail within 2 weeks.
You will be sent a link to a comments-section on this website, so that we can all engage in conversation.
These 360 poems will be compiled in a book, offered at a discount to all of you who co-created it.
*What will your poem be?
Tell me as much or as little as you like. ...something about yourself that you would like me to know. Also tell me something outside of yourself, something that is a subject of interest to you.
Be sure information on Paypal (email, mailing address) matches info on the order form below.If you would like this to be a gift and sent to a different address, please make note! I will mail your poem within 2 weeks but let me know if there is a rush-date you need it by.
