International Poetry Month 2010 is now closed. The marauding hordes left the library ablaze, the flood washed away the ashes, the caravan carrying the last copy of the precious poetry collection has vanished in the desert.
What remains is the oral tradition; I have made audio files of each poem available where the poem used to be posted. There is also the possibility that a copy of some of these works still exist in the archives of the poets themselves. Anyone who is on my e-mail list has a ‘fragment’ of each work. Perhaps, like the poems of Sappho, this is all that will remain.
I would like to extend my profound thanks to the following guest poets for their contributions:
Anonymous 21st cent. Italian Poet
Several of these poets have blogs where new poetry may be encountered. I encourage anyone suffering from poetry withdrawal to visit these sites by clicking on any of the names that appear in colour.
Thanks as well to everyone who has stopped by to read and comment on the posted work. It has been a real joy to present so much fine poetry this year. Now I have to start thinking about next year, and as my sweetheart reminded me this morning, get back to writing.
The poetry series was wonderful! Thanks for your hard work.
Dear REL, thanks for reading! Very happy to know that you enjoyed it.
This was so fantastic! I loved it! I know it must have taken an extraordinary amount of work, and I hope you know how much I, and so many others, have appreciated IPM. Many thanks!
I am so glad that I had the opportunity to showcase your work. Please post some more, I know that lots of people would like the chance to enjoy it!
can’t wait to see you in Dallas.
Felicitations pour un travail bien fait.
And I would like to extend my gratitude to you, Bonnie, for all the work you put into the project. It was a fantastic experience, so much great poetry and podcasts. I look forward to next year’s festival greatly. And once again,
Thank you for participating. It was a pleasure to be able to record your work and to share it with my readers.
Grazie dal cuore,
Thank you so much, Bonnie. A very engaging project, and I too am looking forward to the next IPM. Hope you are enjoying a productive writing session.
