A rendezvous for poets who find, in poetry, a balance of forces; a conjunction of opposites; a mean between extremes.
Thanks Henry. I've been reading poetry blogs for five years or so, and I've always resisted blogging myself because it seems like it could eat up a bunch of time. But being one of many bloggers on this site seems less daunting than having my own blog, so I'm going to give it a go.
So I said "Mmpllff," though I meant "Welcome to Plumbline Tom,"and I said "Mmpllff," though I meant "It's at least an interesting place to kill your time, and the cause is a good one."
Mairi,Thanks for checking out my poem. Did you hear Garrison Keillor's pronunciation of "Mmpllff." He says "Oaarrr" or something like that: http://writersalmanac.publicradio.org/index.php?date=2008/10/26
I wouldn't want to attempt the transliteration, but, as always with Mr. Keillor, a good reading. I suspect all dental hygienists have spouses who don't let them get a word in edgewise. How else to account for it?
Great to have you on board, Tom!Mike
