10 months, no new poems!
Well, I think I have a good excuse. I had a baby on May 13th. :-) I hope to write lots of poems about having been pregnant, and about new motherhood, and of course, my precious little angel baby. I am inspired by poets like Sharon Olds and Gayle Roby of the Alewife Poets. But as any poet knows...you can't have these powerful experiences and emotions and write about them the next day. At least I don't think most poets can. They need to sit and percolate...and in the meantime, I'm enjoying every little snuggle and coo...and the occaisional bit of sleep! :-)
