Blog Anniversary

Today is the 6th year since this poetry blog got started! Since then I have self-published a total of nine poetry books. More will be on the way. I was thinking about putting together a fun collection of dog poems based in double elevenie form. I have already started them if you have been reading them. Another idea for poetry book I was thinking was letter poems. Letter poems are like letters but done in more of a poetic way. Two examples are the Moon And Sun Letter and Love Letter To My Dog. I am in current work of a possible how to write poetry book with prompts and sample of my poems. I am also considering on adding another category section for giving you guys a chance to write a poem based on a prompt I post once a month. Then pick one of poems and feature it on my blog. If you think it is a good idea let me know. You can either comment here or to the suggestion and ideas page. I look forward to posting more poetry to everyone who is following my blog and future followers!

Into A Book

I wish books would suck me into their world.
I want to physically be there;
Can touch, smell, hear and see all
Hear dialogue play through ears
Watch action close at hand
Be apart of world
Enjoy the time
Until end
Is near;
