      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.

The Morning Sun

The Morning Sun

She wakes with the sun,
her blanky tucked under her arm
the toddler runs
into her Mommy's embrace.
The day's disovery begins with hugs.

She wakes with the sun
and Mom's prompts, reluctantly.
Dreams interrupted,
time to get ready for school.
She doesn't need sleep to dream.

She wakes with the sun
with her groom warm by her side,
a rich future smiles.
In love with love she makes plans
to fill each day with adventure.

She wakes with the sun
too much to do to lie in bed,
kids, hubby, job, meals, laundry
and pick up dry cleaning.
Can she sneak time for herself?

She wakes with the sun,
she writes best in the morning.
Days full, but quiet.
When noisy grandchildren visit
the sun shines brightest.

She wakes with the sun
and moves with slow grace,
joints ache in rising.
She stretches age from her bones
to embrace the gift of one more day.

Hi, Tink. Timeless poem. Strange maybe, but I saw each stanza as a different person, even though I know it's a matter of maturing and new outlooks. I think we are all different people every day. Maybe a self-defense so I can live with myself. ;) I can identify with "When noisy grandchildren visit

the sun shines brightest."
