Poetry in Motion-Part 2

In an earlier post, I talked about how a poetry contest for Gundlach Bundschu served as the impetus for me to start writing again.  I’d like to say that I continued to write on a regular basis and now have volumes of poetry, documenting my years of wonder with my little ones, but that’s not the case.  […]
