A New Year with Poetry for #Peace

It is frequently a pleasure to read some regular wordpress bloggers.  One I often look forward to is Damyanti Writes.  This was especially so when I read her What do you plan to do this New Year?  For starters, it offers a very practical New Year resolution. It will not be popular with those who use social media as a means of attacking people and ideas.  But another reason it warrants a mention on Simon’s Still Stanza is that it includes a very good poet – Mary Oliver.

A New Year might be an opportunity to not only make fresh resolutions, but to read a different author, or to revisit one who has enriched us before.

Daydreaming as a profession

Daydreaming and then, maybe, writing a poem about it. And that's my life.
