    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

Eating The Earth

After Tyrone, the little boy next door,
makes her eat a handful of dirt
for telling lies
about where babies come from,
her father says it will do her no harm.
You have to eat a peck of dirt
before you die, her father says.
He also says she hadn’t lied:
babies do come that way.
