I'm back in 30/30 doing 30 poems in 30 days and it feels great. Some days are harder than others, but it is a blast. I'm also writing a flash a day for the month of September, which is decidedly more challenging, but very rewarding.

I've had several acceptances recently and you can currently find my poem not 29 anymore in the new issue of the denver syntax. This is a great zine, with a beautiful look and lots of fabulous work.

I also have two poems in the brand-new Irish ezine, The Linnet's Wings. I'm thrilled to have these pieces published because they're both quite personal and mean a lot to me. Memory of a Winter's Day is about an anniversary trip we took to the Grand Canyon. The second poem is a haibun and stretches all the way back to when Dennis and I first met. It's called Taking the Road from Crownpoint to Chaco.

Hope you enjoy!

Congratulations on all your acceptances! I really enjoyed these, particularly "not 29 anymore" (those last lines are exquisite!) And thanks for introducing me to two new mags.

I hope you post your 30:30 titles in your blog. For some reason, I get a kick out of seeing nice new poem titles in an orderly list. :)

Awesome! The poems are wonderful. I especially liked Memory of a Winter's Day.

These are two mags I had not come across, so thanks for that too.

Thanks Theresa! I'll be sure to put my titles up just for you. I'm on day 18 right now.

Easywriter, thanks! Glad you enjoyed them.

Michi, I did get your email and meant to write back but geez, it's been nuts around here. Come back to 30:30....can't you hear the sirens calling....come back, Michi, come back!

All of these were wonderful. "Taking the road..." particularly struck me.
