Every Once in a Blue Moon

Congratulations to Penny Wilson for getting a poem published …….

“Congratulations on your recent publication in Poetry Quarterly. It’s true! You have made it into our pages, and now it’s time to brag unapologetically because inclusion in PQ is highly selective.”

Penny Wilson Writes

Those of us that write know all about the merry-go-round of the process.  Write, submit, pray, rejection, repeat.

I received a rejection letter recently that made me think about the Numbers Game that we are involved in when it comes to submitting our writing.  It’s the luck of the draw to some extent.  This particular rejection letter stated that they had over 3,000 entries for a slot of 20 pieces to be published.  They told me to not be discouraged and to submit to them again.  …ok.

A provocoative piece by our friend Stubby 🙂

I reached out to fast,
racing towards an internal light,
I pushed too soon it would never last,
another star now fading, once shone bright.

I tried to take it all on,
every challenge, every creative piece,
but all it lead to was my energy gone,
all it has caused is a damned version of peace.

Couldn’t you see the effect it had?
The death and destruction heading towards my soul,
Where all the creative thoughts left leaving me sad,
creating a gushing waterfall of emotions draining into an eternal hole.

Couldn’t you see I was still here trying?
A lost soul trying to grab some words to write like that of a branch holding on to the last leaf in Autumn,
like a lost child, arms around the knees; crying,
did you see me, while you were out there having fun?

Have you noticed how much I have fought?

Question Fun # 3 – Food

Just in case you ever wanted to know the absolute truth which by the way is hidden very deep in the X-files – here it is …

Why does fish smell so fishy and so very fishy at that?

Because they are fish and they are scary and they are nasty. They probably are smelly to keep from getting eaten, but it doesn’t work.

I am not a chef, but I can cook and bake. Except I do burn toast and bread of all kinds. It’s my signature dish, and everyone in my family knows it.

Really bad, practically hopeless

Not Bad, but awfully clumsy

About average ‘toast is a meal, right’
