      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.

Sunrise Service

Recommended Posts

A poem written this morning as an example of a verse form Cornish Fourteenth Century Stanza but the content is appropriate for the day... Happy Easter!

Sunrise Service

Empty cross upon a hill,
rising sun warms morning chill,
joyful sounds fill the air.
I stand within the faithful press
In MaryJanes and yellow dress,
age 8, I can only stare.
                  ---Judi Van Gorder

I can see the young girl so clearly, too young to fully grasp the great significance of the service yet recognizing that something really special is going on. Besides she has a new dress- you don't get a new dress unless something is really important. Somehow I see all the adults in this picture in shades of grey. She alone is in color. Perhaps it is her innocents that makes her shine. Spiritually- Do we fade to shades of grey as the realities this life, like your rising sun, dawn upon us? Hmmmm?

 

Love the picture that you have shared

Thanks rhymeguy, yes I remember events by what I wore...it is true. I loved that yellow dress with the white collar. Nothing fancy but it was special to me. And the event made a lasting impression obviously.

 

DC, Thank you.

I like the mix of classic form and present-day content, Tinker. Love the title, too!
