Starting next Monday, [community profile] poetree will return to its regular schedule, albeit with a few administrative changes to make it more sustainable for the comm admins ([personal profile] jjhunter and [personal profile] alee_grrl) to run:

  • The exhaustive weekly roundup posts will be replaced by two regular threads at the weekly Sunday Picnic, one for comm members to signal-boost posts relevant to the comm that they've made that week at their own journal/website, and one for general, i.e. non-personal, poetry news.

  • Starting next week [community profile] poetree will run on a calendar so that guest Hosts and multi-Hosted themed weeks can be scheduled further in advance. Each month will generally have one multi-Hosted themed week, one week reserved for a guest Host invited by the admins, and two 'open slot' weeks. Those who sign up to Host on the current signup post [signup post #3 will go up some point this week] will be assigned open slot weeks on a first-come, first-served basis.

  • You may have noticed that the Sunday Picnic yesterday was not posted by the personal user account of [personal profile] jjhunter or [personal profile] alee_grrl. [personal profile] poetree_admin is a new shared user account for [community profile] poetree admins. It will be used on the comm to post '!admin'-tagged entries. You can find the personal username of the admin who posted a particular post or last edited it using [personal profile] poetree_admin at either the top or bottom of all such posts.

    N.B. This week, [personal profile] alee_grrl and [personal profile] jjhunter will be posting/reposting several frequently edited '!admin-tagged' posts (the new calendar, signup post #3, the landing sticky post, the poetry host index, etc.) to the comm using [personal profile] poetree_admin in preparation for the start of [community profile] poetree 2.0 next week. This will enable the admins to edit such posts interchangeably and make it much easier to keep them up to date in the future.

I finally got around to doing abbreviated weekly round-ups for the last week of April and most of May. They are abbreviated in that they include links only to the hosts entries and the Sunday picnic and challenge posts. I left off the usual links to associated members off community posts, general poetry news, and highlights from the comments. I apologize, but if I wanted to get caught up it seemed best to make the older round-ups a bit more condensed.

Please note that if you have any news of interest to the comm that you'd like to see included in the next weekly roundup that you should PM me or email me at my gmail address ('jjhunter24') by 5:00pm EST on Sunday at the latest.

You can find it here at my personal journal. Also of potential interest is my post on the various google search strings Google Analytics claims lead people here to POETREE: Google Analytics, or "poems by shel silverstein that have lots of poetic elements".

Highlights from the comments

[personal profile] rbarenblat and Luisa have a conversation regarding the mystery that lies at the heart of poetry: comment and response.

[personal profile] peoppenheimer poses hir own questions: 1. Why must my words be perfect?
2. Understand what I mean, not what I say!
3. Trees shrouded in mist; sunlight on a mountain peak; sun in shadow.
4. Understanding without words.
5. Does pragmatics trump semantics?
6. If only there were a characteristica universalis!
7. Dark blue denim, light blue denim.
8. Contrast makes clarity only within silence.
9. Acceptance does not imply agreement.
10. It's hard to know when two persons say the same thing.
11. When is one line a rewriting of another?


[personal profile] rbarenblat's response to "Ghazal of the Transcendental":
The penultimate couplet especially resonates with me! And also the notion that one must sing rather than drone. In some ways, that's the whole struggle of the spiritual life (the writing life, too) -- to return, again and again, to my intention of singing instead of being ground down by droning.

I'm filling in for [personal profile] jjhunter and doing this week's weekly round-up post. In order to boost our signal a bit, I posted it here on my own journal.

A huge thanks to [personal profile] avendya for the lovely poems she shared, and a welcome to our upcoming host: Luisa A. Igloria.
