      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.

covered with ice two frogs live

waiting for springtime

dissolves in coffee and chat-
this cafe so crowded

this cafe so crowded
I take my latte to go...
the street is empty

the street is empty
of birds and other wild things-
only the cars growl

only the cars growl
down the straight dessert highway
snake suns silently

Did anyone see the other day's "Conjunction Haiku" (poem beneath image)? Take a look.

 

But okay, is it appropriate to jump on the train here with a picture and poem by other? No! So here we go:

 

 

will she wake him

with the rising of the sun?

the moon casts shadows

 

the moon casts shadows

sadder than April showers

spring tulips erupt

 

 

There's lots of terrific work taking place in Member Poetry. I hope to catch up there this week.

Nice to see Tony and Joel jumping on board.

In the summer's evening heat,
a woman bends back
towards the rising full moon

spring tulips erupt
towards the rising full moon
tonight sleep can wait
