My cousin Patrick has been after me to get some poetry linked into Facebook...and this is one way to do that. I'm also interested in blogging this year as part of my new writers community here at Everett Community College. (More on that later.) So jump in, and hang on!

August is Poetry Postcard Month and here's my August 2 postcard, written for my friend Melina (a good friend of my teenaged daughters):

She's home from Wolf Camp
where there were, unfortunately,
no wolves, though the squirrels
talked much more there
than they talk here.
What did they say? I ask her
and she says, I'm not sure
what they were saying during the day
but at 5 a.m. they were saying
Wake up, Melina. Wake up!


  1. Congratulations on the launch and best of luck with the blog and the poetry!

  2. Richard, you're my very first visitor. Thanks for coming by!
