View from the choir

I am a Catholic layperson and Secular Franciscan with a sense of humor. After years in the back pew watching, I have moved into the choir. It's nice to see faces instead of the backs of heads. But I still maintain God has a sense of humor - and that we are created in God's image.

Limiting Poetry Posting

I checked out the guidelines for the haiku magazine that came in today.

They, like many of the other magazines I read - and sometimes to which I submit poems - say they do not accept any poems published on personal blogs, Facebook, Twitter, etc.

I've had a habit of sharing my poems online, but if I hope to have more of them published, I have to stop. So from now on, unless a poem is intended just to be whimsical, I won't post it until after it's been published.

I know that all three fans of my poems will lament my bowing to the literary demigods, but, well, I like to see my poems in print!

And sometimes, I even get paid for them. Every 50 cents counts these days!
