    Hi yaya, i wonder if in that year that is now over how it went... Did you get to write and let yourself keep your work? I hope so. Remember that all writing counts as practice, so even when you cannot sit down to write a poem you are still working when you take care in writing emails or notes to anyone at any time. I would love to hear from you, see what youve been up to, writing-wise, if you cared to show me. Feel free to contact me, you know how! My best. Pam

    Years ago I was on a forum and you introduced me to poetry. The first poem I read was How to Read a Poem, Beginner's Manual and then I read the Mathematician and then To Forgive. You showed me how not to be afraid to read or write poetry. So I starting writing my own poetry but then later I tore it all up. Just yesterday I ordered two books of poetry on amazon.com and plan to read a poem a day as you suggested and maybe I will start writing poetry again and this time I will keep my poems in a binder. Thanks Pam for introducing me to poetry. I now feel ready to read and write poetry and not be afraid of it. Best regards to you. Moeder aka Yaya

My Mother Was Medea

An absurd delusion, perhaps, but
I maintain she always loved me
even as her dagger pierced my chest
and I felt my breath go black and tight.
There was much aggravation beforehand
and I had never been the easiest child.
Plus, you should understand
her own childhood had left scars.
Certainly, my father was always difficult
