February 21st forum announcement

Dear Poetry Aficionados,

Poetry & Poets in Rags blog

Our first link in News at Eleven takes us on a journey into Afghanistan through writing, especially poetry. Our last link in that section, our Back Page item, is called "The U.S. Poet Laureate W.S. Merwin and his Maui Journey." In between we go through Palestine, China, the days of King Arthur, the works of Homer, the month of February around the world, New Zealand, and more. Of course poetry has to do with imagination and ideas too, and the articles and poems in News at Eleven, Great Regulars, and yes Poetic Obituaries as well, take us through, not only the poets' and writers' but our own poetic sensibilities and the humanness we all share. Again, be sure to visit Poetic Obituaries. You'll find a link to a tribute to Wislawa Szymborska by Katha Pollitt, which includes the poem "Could Have" that should touch you wherever you are.

Thanks for clicking in.
