      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.

Harnessing your Muse Sunday tinkering with color.

lush Spring blades of grass
soft needles from Redwood boughs
my granddaughter's eyes


#36

royal Iris bloom
penitent vestments of Lent
taste of Burgundy


#37
tang of citrus orbs
tonight sunset's grand glory
Donald Trump's toupee


#38
laughing summer skies
deep oceans and wide rivers
singing a sad song


#39
love's chosen flower,
vampire's favorite flavor
soft kissable lips

surrounded by old bound books

Mornings remind me
Of her songs and her laughter.
My guess, she still sings

Places I've never been that I would love to see. Alaska, Zimbabwe is Shona for house of stone

deck rocks below me
blue shadowed iceberg looms
camera clicks

#44

Zambezi cascades
into smoke that thunders
house of stone gateway

clings to my finger tips
Gram smiles at me

closed her blue eyes and died
silence hurts my ears

three broken hand bones
and two broken foot bone
Beware of showers!

This stupid song keeps going through my head
"them bones, them bones, then dry bones
them bones, them bones, then dry bones
them bones, them bones, then dry bones
Now hear the word of the Lord"
