I received my second rejection letter for some poems today--and very quickly, too; I had only submitted them last week. Sigh. (Sob!)
So...I sent out more poems today.
Therefore I thought I'd share a quote or two about poetry for this week's quotation. (Okay...quotationS)
"Poetry is just the evidence of life. If your life is burning well, poetry is just the ash."So I hope to grow as a poet and gain a couple of acceptance letters. But I'm saving my rejection letters anyway--not really sure why. Perhaps to look back over in about...oh, maybe like ten years...and laugh.
"The poet is a liar who always speaks the truth."
"Poetry is a deal of joy and pain and wonder, with a dash of the dictionary."
Hopefully awash in acceptance letters in a decade...or two,
