I am Sorry (Yellow)

Another poem makes the POETRY HIT PARADE AT POETIC ASIDES... the prompt: apology.

This one hits close to home...

On another note, off tomorrow morning to THE MUSE AND THE MARKETPLACE, a writing conference sponsored by the not-for-profit GRUB STREET in good old Beantown. Besides listening to writers like Jonathan Franzen, Anita Shreve, Karl Iagnemma - among many others - and meeting with an agent (shushhhhhh!!!), I also will be meeting, for the first time ever, several cyber buddies, including Steve from my Nudge-Nudge Writing Group and MAGS, from the Triggering Town.

I'll be back with more details... later. Now, gotta pithy up my pitch.

Peace, Linda


  1. Hi Linda,
    In my daily google search for "poetic asides" to post yesterday's poem (oops, late again!), I noticed your blog comes up pretty high on the list. Just wanted to drop a note to say hello, and I like your stuff! If you stick with it, I will too. :)
    Have fun at the conference!

    Jen (JL Smither on the poetry thingy)

  2. To live in the day when one did not need agents...sigh. Good luck Linda.

  3. Thanks for dropping by. Jen, that sestina today---whew! Tough. I'm going to bed. Peace, Linda

  4. Ohhhh but I like agents, Sarah. They're quite fun. :) I can't wait to get one of my own. I will love it and squeeze it and name it George.

    And Linda, I just SAW this. congrats again, my poetic friend.
