A Romantic Dream

If you have been to my blog before, you might have read some of my poetry. Today, if you look for it here, it is gone. Why? Because I think I want to try to get published.

Recently, after giving a couple of poems to someone to read, she asked me if I ever considered trying to publish my work. No, I hadn’t. One thing I do know is that if I have any hope of getting published in some journals, the poems can’t be submitted anywhere else.

So, I am trying to pull down ALL of my poetry that I have on WordPress. There is also one on Google images. What a pain, but I am going to try to get them to remove it. I hate looking up my name or my blog name and finding images on Google. When did I agree to that? Hopefully, none of it has wandered anywhere that I am not aware of. That happens.

Maybe I am fooling myself with romantic ideas of one day publishing some of my poems, but I’ll never know unless I try.

*********************

That brings me to Bastet’s Pixelventures prompt for this week, to show something romantic. I realize that my post and the prompt have nothing to do with one another, but I did work the word “romantic” into the post.

The photo is in response to the prompt. I think it is very romantic. It is a sculpture from the Grounds for Sculpture in Hamilton Township, New Jersey. I love the reflection (my word for the year) in the water. The sculpture, by Seward Johnson, is part of a larger three-dimensional imitation of Edouard Manet’s painting, Le dejeuner sur l’herbe.

  3. Bravo for you! That sounds like an exciting avenue to pursue! Your poetry is wonderful and your so very talented. Why not be published?! :-) I wish you all the best in your pursuit. What better way to begin a reality than as a romantic dream? xo

  5. Collating and editing a collection of ones poems is a lot of work (I’m still sorting through mine), all the best on all fronts for the project/s. It’s taken here just a little over five months to sort through five short stories using a professional editor to catch all my faults and flaws.
