The following is a collaborative work by textile artist Jane Hunter and poet Sam Kilday
Abound with shades and hues,
But a tilt shift,
a definite rift.
Colour draining away.
Look up without superiority.
Vibrance and warmth.
A depth of palette.
And richer for it.
Hello Bonnie. Thank you for organising another IPM this year. There is clearly a great deal of work in it for you but it is most enjoyable for your readers, and has the added benefit of introducing us to other poets we have not come across before. All the best, John
Hi John, thank you very much for participating. I very much appreciate your involvement both as a poet and through your comments. I’m looking forward to next year!
Bonnie, I love IPM! Thank you so much for all of your hard work and diligence! It has been a pleasure to read the poems, and I appreciate being allowed the opportunity to have mine read by such a knowledgeable and appreciative audience. Brava, Bonnie! You’ve done it again!
I’m so glad that you’ve enjoyed this year, we were lucky to have a really diverse group of readers and poets. Thanks for your participation and I’m looking forward to IPM 2018.
My thanks also, Bonnie. I have thoroughly enjoyed reading everyone’s poetry this year, and pleased to have been a part of it. I admire the attention that you give to introducing the poems and poets in your daily updates. Looking forward to IPM2018!
Thanks for taking part both as a reader and a writer Brad. I appreciate your contribution every year!
