      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.

Thanks Tinks.

 

in the afternoon's siesta,

head bowed and silent-

breeze flips the book's pages.

breeze flips book's pages
covertly moves plot forward
tide laps at the shore

tide laps at the shore,

darkens and wrinkles the sand -

another furrowed brow

Now that was a good one Badge. Love where you took that one.

another furrowed brow
mars my reflection
grandson makes my smile

outside looking in
a sudden smile weaving threads
neither saw coming

neither saw coming
in the cold fog of winter
a beacon ignites

Geez Badge, As if "neither saw coming" wasn't hard enough now you're throwing Welsh at me.

men of Harlech sing
deep rich tones in minor key
Croeso i Gymru

*Croeso i Gymru = Welcome to Wales

(This is dedicated to Mr. Jones, a 92 year old Welsh gentleman who on his daily walk would stop at the office where I worked in the early 70s (the door to the street was usually open and my desk was in the front). He was always smiling and he would stop to chat. Once he learned my greatgrandmother came to the US from Wales he decided to teach me Welsh and he would sing Welsh songs to me.. I didn't learn much but I looked forward to his visits and was saddened when after about a year he stopped coming by.)

and then comes the rush of her
