May I ask for your assistance and submissions?

Prairie Inkwells, a poetry group with which I am affiliated, has been approached by Access Kansas, a local television station, to appear for a five minute “Mic Moment” during their “Celebration of the First Amendment” on Saturday, May 31, 2003.  My co-founder has said, “you’ll be speaking for us,” so I have signed us up for a booth and a five-minute speaking engagement in front of the “open Mic”.  

Now, here is what I would like to do, with YOUR assistance.  First, I have a slightly selfish request.  I will be taking submissions from you as to what poem of mine might be a fair and proper poem to read at this “Celebration of the First Amendment”.  I will announce the poem and the poet who picked it, here in Passions.

Secondly, Bridget Shenachie, my poetry and Passions partner, and I will pick one, two, or three OTHER poems submitted by YOU to read as a member of Passions in Poetry.  I will do what I can to include YOUR poetry into a citywide televised event!   No, there will be no outlay of funds, from either side; there are no sales of any kind at this time; but it IS a push to put poetry to the forefront of the American populace once again.  If you are interested in my sharing your poetry, then please, place the link to your poem previously placed in Passions onto this post.  Bridget and I will go through them, and I will advise every one of the choices that I will read at the “Celebration of the First Amendment.”

Submissions will be taken until May 15.  Thank you for your assistance!

That is wonderful what you are doing!

Here is a tanka that I wrote that you may use if you so choose, for your amendment event.

This may be a bit lengthy nevertheless I feel this is probably the crown jewel in my collection of poetry that encourages the securing of free-speech and the celebration of the living word!



I am going to look through your vast collection of poems and take my time so i can see to it I find the one that I feel best conveys the free spirit!



God Bless You and thank you for all the wonderful work you're doing! We all so deeply appreciate it! (angel hugs)



Love,
Noah Eaton

It's not the same without the graphic to show that the poem is about a Native American woman though...

Noah, you're correct - that may be a bit lengthy - so feel free to submit any of your shorter poems for consideration.  I only have five minutes!!

PdV, that's a wonderful selection, and there's nothing keeping me from mentioning the fact that this is about a Native American Woman!  Thank you!

How wonderful! I will spend some time looking through your posts, and select one or two I like best that fit the bill.

Whoopsadaisy! EA feels pretty dum dum! I put the wrong URL down! You must have thought that I was crackers submitting a love poem!

Here is the senryu that I meant to submit. It isn't about amendments or such, but it is about patriotism...
http://piptalk.com/pip/Forum74/HTML/001812.html

I think that I might submit several URLs of poems of mine that didn't do very well so that you can bump them up when you make your gracious replies!

This is a good time to clarify that as it relates to "Freedom of Speech" it doesn't necessarily have to do with the First Amendment.  They are using this day to be able to speak in the form of poetry, or other artistic ways.  So, Linda, your "love" poem would've/could've worked...

and submit all you want.  I have my partner beside me to help me sort them out and take samplings from here and there.  Let's give Bridget something to do, eh?

Okay, then! Here's a rictameter on Freedom!
http://piptalk.com/pip/Forum79/HTML/000564.html

Peace, Love & Freedom of Speech!

Warm hugs to both you and Bridget!

Linda

Gosh, I when I click on the above address it says the page is not available! I rechecked the poem and that is the address!

I do not understand why the poem does not appear! I posted it on 04-24-2003 at 11:14 am

Here it is:

Freedom
Offers us the
Opportunity to
Live and believe as we so choose.
Lives have been lost so that this may be so.
Be thankful for such a blessing.
Speak for those without voice
That they might have
Freedom

Hello folks!  Putting together a brochure for the Celebration - your poems will be included - those that are picked [fairly short] and can be read during this whole five minute span...

some thoughts are coming to me....

I'll be fitting into this brochure some of your poems, [perhaps some artwork] and I'm giving you heads up that I will be notifying those whose poems are chosen, that I will be asking you to sign off with your full name, permitting me use of your own copyrighted poetry; I will also be asking to name your state or country of residence [so they can see PiP's overall audience - as we will be handing these brochures out to those who are interested] AND...

you will be getting a glimpse of the brochure in about 10 days, to say "yea" or "nay" as to being part of this exciting event...

Again, thank you for your participation; I've been getting some wonderful input from folks, and I'm excited to be doing this not only for Prairie Inkwells, but PiP as well!

Wow Karilea how exciting, you wrote several wonderful poems all worth to share that special day.

A few years ago I wrote one and posted that in Holiday cheer, and  I have repost it in open.

Thank you Charisma, now look around in your archives for some of your shorter pieces, because you've got the right idea, and I've only got so much room.  You're the tanka lady!  What can you show me in a tanka?

well you asked for a tanka Karilea, and I post it in open. Didn't find a good one in my archives, so I hope you don't mind I wrote a new one.

My two dimes, don't know if this is the right idea

When freedom is in our soul
And democracy in our mind
Then could one tell me please
Why they are so hard to find
Sometimes


Titia

Should the 'sometimes' stay or go? Don't know.



Like scattered leaves...my words will flow
