A hearty howdy to three new Perpetual Birders.
One is a current student of mine and budding poet, Lacey Bodensteiner. I look forward to her comments here!
Then there is Mark Brooks, creator of the highly (hai-li?) energetic online haiku publication haijinx. Mark has been very smart about using social media (haijinx is on both Twitter and Facebook); even better, he’s been smart about the work he presents at haijinx. Give it a look!
Finally, for this round at least, there is Richard from Blackhawk, South Dakota. Richard maintains three blogs: Our World, mostly-video miscellany; Dead Leaves, an ongoing compilation of Richard’s poems; and Dried Leaves, also Richard’s poems but … well, how to put it: poems that some readers will feel cross one or another boundary of taste (think e. e. cummings’s long-suppressed poem “the boys i mean are not refined“).
