Ft. Lauderdale, Fl USA
Way back when, in October of 1999, some of our poets participated in a project entitled My Home Town, in which members posted a poem about where they lived. They could choose their city or, if they preferred, their state, area or country. It was quite a success. We found that it gave us insight into each poet's life to the point where we felt we knew them better than just a name on the screen. It greatly increased the familiarity we shared with each other. Well, that was then and this is now. Passions has grown by leaps and bounds and many more countries are represented now than back then. Also our membership has increased substantially. So...we propose to do it again.
Should you care to join in, please write a poem about your home town or area in which you live. E-mail them to me at email@example.com and I will compile them into a collaberation of all participating poets. If you would like to see the first one, please go to.. http://piptalk.com/pip/Forum69/HTML/000849.html
If you feel you would like to participate but need some time to complete it, please let me know so that I can wait for you. I think you will be pleasantly surprised at how you may look at poets in different ways after viewing the world through their eyes based on their surroundings....and you will learn a lot more about your country and the world, in general.
