View from the prism of 'ism'
and post notes and photos about your poem like Gershon Wolf.
Entry in Richard L's 'Poem of the Day' poetry contest: I remember just whipping this one off in about 15 minutes late one night, and then going to sleep thinking that it was just the essence of silliness, that it wouldn't garner any interest, and that I'd probably just delete it the next day...Well, you can see what a "prophet" I was (and am). LOL. At any rate, thank you, Richard, for the opportunity to reflect on this one...
