      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.

Haiku Train - catch it - free tickets

Recommended Posts

Haha, you are just about right on.  What a mess.  My left hand has the brace off now but isn't as flexible or strong as it was, yet.  I felt the cup slipping from my hand as I unlocked my Agency and lunged for my office manager's desk which was closest, thinking I could put it down there.  But didn't make it.  Unfortunately she had the day off so I was alone to clean up the mess and at the same time try to field phone calls.  Luckily no clients came into the office until I had finally cleaned it all up and was functioning in my own office.  I also had coffee spots all over the front of my blouse and thought to run home at lunch and change but instead ended up working all day, no lunch break, pulling my blazer over the spots when clients stopped by. 

no lunch break today
quotes, questions and claims, nonstop
some days are like that

Not complaining, I'm grateful I'm still able to run my Agency and help others.  Hand out of brace.  My 6 weeks of daily radiation treatments ended Thursday.  I'm feeling energized and ready to get back to living my life on my terms.

Wow, Tink. I didn't realize your previous haiku was based on a real experience. I'm glad you're finally getting back to normal.

some days are like that
if it can go wrong, it will

Plan for Spring garden
begins during my harvest
Save seeds or buy fresh

Hybrids won't come true to type
but surprises are welcome

surprises welcome
January hides its gifts
under ice surface
the ground waits to be opened
by seedlings pushing upward

life's cycle persists
carrion scatter from feast
when I drive by
rutting season completed
a pregnant doe in the field
