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.

Hello! [personal profile] kaberett sent me.

I'm studying for a PhD in contemporary sacred choral composition, despite having no formal training in composing and no Master's degree. One of the deficits in my background is in analysing and understanding poetry... so I am here to look through archives and stuff.

Is there etiquette on whether it's okay to comment, ask questions etc on very old posts?

And there's a good chance the comm will come off hiatus in the new year, now that at least one of the admins (me!) has her offline life on a steadier keel and several of her non-work commitments wrapping up this December.

In the meantime, you are more than likely to comment & ask questions on old posts - I for one tend to be thrilled that anyone's still reading stuff I wrote years ago, and I suspect I've got plenty of company. If you're coming at this with music in mind, you may especially enjoy the themed week [personal profile] luzula hosted on the pleasures & practice of reading poetry aloud (scroll to the first post on her tag and read in reverse order). You might also find the my post on making a practice of poetry useful - as with many arts, there's a deeper understanding that comes with dipping into trying it yourself, and there are a lot of great recs for exercises the comments.
