A short note to say hello to all on this forum. I joined the group today with views of reading and posting poetry. I have been writing poetry since the late 1960s (now that can give my age away) and have short works published in magazines and anthologies. On top of that I have recently released my second chapbook of poetry. I am currently a member of The Poetry Society (UK). As you will probably find, although I write poetry, grammar is my worst enemy. Looking forward to interacting with you.

Sunshine, please don't feel offended, but as much as I appreciate the greeting card you have apparently sent me, I never feel comfortable opening them. Some greeting cards can have hidden viruses, which is a curse in our modern-day computerised world. I have an anti-virus programme, but even they are not always 100% affective.

Welcome aboard Ron. I look forward to reading your work.

You don't have to worry about the greeting cards that come from Piptalk. They come directly from here with no hidden viruses.

Thank you for putting my fears at rest with regards to the greeting card. I did open it and it looks fantastic. Thank you to Sunshine. It's a beautiful greeting for a new member.

Welcome aboard!  Your artwork is simply stunning, so I can't wait to read your submissions of poetry.  The pebbles you did in watercolor is fantastic!

     Looking forward to seeing some of your stuff.  I've never done any chapbooks, but I'm very fond of the U.K. scene.    Grammar is a serious pain for me as well.  When my wife and I got down to London, we really loved the readings at Betterton House.  Two guys who edited The Wolf were really sweet, and everybody was very friendly.

     I think we're about the same age.

     I'm very fond of Poetry Review and Ambit, both first rate magazines, though I'm ten years out of date.

All my best, Bob Kaven

Welcome to PIP.  This is more than a posting place, it's a family of very caring poets and wanna bees, like me.  I know you'll like it here.

God bless!

Welcome. Your grammar can never be worse than mine.

Like scattered leaves...my words will flow
