Sunday, every Sunday, let's have a community picnic. It's probably been a long week, and it's lovely to have a few minutes to sit back and relax and enjoy some good conversation in a less formal space. Feel free to bring something for the Picnic Basket - a poem you liked this week, a thought you had or something you experienced, or even something completely unrelated to poetry whatsoever that you just feel like sharing. Just take a moment to say hello, and maybe have a bite to eat; no one is going anywhere fast, and the shade promises some relief from the everyday heat. Let’s get to know each other a bit better, here under the branches of the poet’s tree.

Recently I have posted "Ohana," "Getting a Room," "Light Above Water," and "The Wingdresser's Kitchen."

Also all 16 poems from my mid-month fishbowl about Monster House have been sponsored and posted over on LiveJournal. Use the "poem" tag to find them.

"The Wingdresser's Kitchen is the only one I've had a chance to read yet. It blows me away it is so good. It really captures the race/ethnicity issues surrounding hair care and beauty parlors. One of the documentaries on my list of things to watch is Chris Rock's Good Hair.

Thank you! I'm glad you found the poem so compelling. I love mixing real-world issues with fantasy elements.
