Margaret Fieland: Poetry and Prose


Nice weather, and more on National Poetry Month

Posted in Uncategorized by Administrator on the April 23rd, 2008

So it’s finally turned seasonably warm here and I managed to put my cords in the attic and bring down some more of my short sleeved shirts. I still need to bring down most of my shorts and my sleeveless shirts.

Oy! The chances of my ever having enough closet space to *not* have to switch seasons is small to vanishing.

I’ve also been keeping up with Robert Brewer’s challenge to write and post a poem a day on his blog for National Poetry Month. So far that’s over twenty new poems posted, plus a couple more I’ve written “on the side.” Two of them have been featured in the “highlights of day ..” on Robert’s blog.

Wow! But, boy, am I going to have my work cut out for me in May, when I get down to revising. Still, it’s a truly amazing boost in poetry productivity.  I hope I don’t just fall back to the old “waiting for inspiration to strike”  when April is over. Sometimes, it seems, inspiration needs a little prodding.

Taxes, and National Poetry Month

So I get too file for an extension again, even though I got all my info to the accountant on time, “on time” meaning I got it all to her before April 15th.

Actually, I think they’ve had the stuff for about three weeks, but that wasn’t long enough to finish everything  up before the deadline, so I file for an extension, complete, of course, with a big check. Ack!

I’ve also been posting a poem a day on Robert Brewer’s blog (in the comments section, along with a hundred or two of my fellow poets). What a blast! Check it out!

Poem a day

Posted in Uncategorized by Administrator on the April 2nd, 2008

April is national poetry month and in celebration I have decided to participate in Robert Lee Brewer’s Poem a Day challenge. Moreover, I’ve decided to bite the bullet and post them in the comments section of Robert’s blog, even though this will most likely make the first drafts at least to be considered previously published.

Anyway, here is the link:
