i found all the old googie backgrounds. i chose a nice understated one for the bulk of the poems, and similar colored ones for new poems. i haven't started putting selfies on my work yet. i could go back and do that to all the stuff i've posted before. it's a nice way to show off my photography. frankly i haven't put up any of the older stuff in this newest marathon. i've been too busy writing new stuff for contests. i've been writing haiku like mad. i would never host a haiku contest, it would be too hard to judge based on 17 syllables, unless it just blew me out of the water, which is hard to do. i may read and comment on it, but i haven't found what i would call a good poem.
some of the ones entered in my latest contest are good-ish. no break out stars, but i have found a couple of new favorites.
i know my poetry isn't that great, not when compared with the master. but i try, and i keep trying and if i ever stop entering poetry contests with set subjects, i may get to it.
