I just returned home from a dinner with great people as well as great poets. In attendance, at what I hope to be the first of many, were Rupert Fike, Collin Kelley, Karen Head, Christine Swint, Julie Bloemeke, Chelsea Rathburn, Cleo Creech, and “little” ole me.
The food was great, but the conversation was even better. I was thrilled to finally meet Christine Swint and Julie Bloemeke. I have only had the pleasure of chatting with them via Facebook. Hopefully, I didn’t give them too big of a dose of Dustin– Christine was across from me during dinner and Julie was to my right. It was great to see Karen, Chelsea, and Rupert as I haven’t seem them in a while. Well, Collin and Cleo, I see your mugs each month for the AQLF meetings. (See the two of you tomorrow!)
I would love for each poet from the dinner to post one of your own poems in a comment to this post. Please.
