      Registration -- to join PMO ***UPDATED INSTRUCTIONS***   03/14/2017

      Automatic registration has been disabled. If you would like to join the Poetry Magnum Opus online community, use the "Contact Us" link at the bottom of this page and follow these instructions: 1. Check your email (including your spam folder) in a timely fashion for a reply. 2. After you receive a reply, use the "Sign Up" link at the top right corner of the page to create your account. Do this fast. I've lost my patience with people who use the "Contact Us" link to express interest in joining and then don't bother to check their email for a reply and don't bother to join after registration has been enabled. The queue fills up fast with spammers, and I have to spend my time sifting through the rubbish to delete them. The window of opportunity for joining will be short. I will not have my time wasted. If you don't check your email and you don't bother registering promptly, you will find that registration has been disabled and your future requests to join may go ignored. /s/ Tony ___________________ [Registration will only be enabled for a short while from the time your message is received, so please check your email for a reply and register within 12 hours of using the "Contact Us" link. (Be sure to check your spam folder if you don't see a reply to your message.)]

      Blogs   05/01/2017

      Blogs are now accessible to Guests. Guests may read and reply to blog entries. We'll see how this works out. If Guest participation becomes troublesome, I'll disable Guest access. Members are encouraged to make use of the PMO Members' Promotional Blog to promote their published works. Simply add your latest entry to the blog. Include relevant information (your name or screen name, poem title, periodical name, hyperlink to the site where published, etc). If you have a lot of them and feel you need your own blog, let me know, and I will try to accommodate you. Members are encouraged to continue also posting their promotional topics in the Promotions forum on the board itself which is better suited for archiving promotions.

just as school lets out
orange tractor drives by
smart phones click away

IMG_0551 (2).PNG

Sorry I couldn't resist, I was talking with my daughter in law by mobile phone while she was picking up my middle school granddaughter.  This poor guy jams up school pickup traffic moving his tractor to a job nearby. He couldn't have chosen a worse time, apparently kids were pulling out their phones and clicking away. My own granddaughter was one of them, she sent the photo to me via text to shoe me why they were laughing. At least that is all she did. She said that SnapChat, Instagram and Facebook are being blown up with various photos of "the orange tractor". I know it's hot out there big guy but wear a hat and keep your shirt on while driving slowly by 400 13 and 14 year olds just getting out of school, all with smart phones.

needle stuck down and deep

girls entertain me
while I wait to be dissected
running late

sterile cold table
warm hand touches my arm
soft surgeon's voice, "I'm here."

Sorry guys, obviously I'm recording my experience as I wade through my new adventure. It isn't always pretty.

girls and grandma play cards,
loved, rest and heal

pills put pain on hold
so far only faint twinges,
when will shoe drop?
