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.

haiku contest, deadline 3/1, no entry fee:

Another round of renku sessions is underway, and the current leader is being proactive about letting people know when submitted verses don't fit what's being asked for, which I find helpful. Today I learned that "mushroom" is a season word...

One of the songs the choir sang at my UU church today was this poem set to music.

It's good fun.

I find it useful to have some sort of a theme, even if it's unstated, for picking poems, but it's certainly not required. Just flip through your favorite collections until you said "Oh, yes, this one" enough times to fill a week.
