Rain in May in the Bay Area!

I can't stop writing poems about it, rain in May, a benediction and a beknighting both -- for our choral concert in Union Square this afternoon it's a dubious blessing, for our landscape it's bounty. Okay, I'll stop alliterating.

Missing my Napowrimo group and the pressure to not only write every day but post and critique. It was an excellent exercise among a group of talented poets, and I look forward to our next workshop venture. Perhaps a Napo week in November? Feel free to offer ideas for convening such an event.

I suppose you've heard about Carol Ann Duffy, the new English Poet Laureate - first woman laureate England has ever had.
