Bloggers Photo

I'm a late babyboomer Canadian born in the beautiful Eastern Townships of Quebec, raised in Northern Ontario, now living in Ottawa, I'm finding out that oncoming golden years offer a very rich perspective on life. 

Please visit often my growing collection of poems and I hope you find many will resonate with you. I'd love to hear your comments.

I am a member of Haiku Canada and have had haiku published.

By the way, my avatar is an ink painting I created on rice paper years ago. The symbol means PLAY - something I have finally learn how to do in later years and poetry is definitely my favourite form of play.

P.S. My name is pronounced Lynn.

In the screen MANAGE YOUR POEMS, what does the column FEATURED refer to?

I thought it might refer to the date selected for POEM OF THE DAY but it doesn't.

And my second question... is there a way to search archives of the POEM OF THE DAY or can we only see the most recent ones?

Any clarification would be most appreciated.

Warmest regards,

Line xx

They always send an email saying that your poem is being featured on the front page that day, (I received one just a couple of weeks ago). I also can not help with the second question, but I've never found or seen a POTD archive. Not sure if this helps, but if you sign out of your account and then view your poems list as OTHERS would, that list will show which poems of yours have been awarded POTD. At least it used to be that way.

If you click on - Featured- it will bring you to a list of dates when your poem was shown on the homepage; -Featured Poems - for a the week.. the other I cannot help with, they use to have the poems shown for almost a month and they have stopped.
