    Lol! Continue to admire your talent to find, albeit succint, poems beginning with X and Z.

    Thanx... a few more x's in my research queue

    Enjoyed... interesting format An abstract of which I haven't the lens necessary to fathom evidentially... perhaps: ceramic piece? WWII? home? lifestyle?; an existential blur? The following is another poem by Miron someone tried to parse... https://evebigaj.medium.com/translat...y-1942c7297411

    Lovely poem I get to rub shoulders, well, be in the same room as a California State Poet Laureate and a handful of more local laureates this Friday... some share the same vision as Ada.

    re: Wow! You will be on a meeting with a California State Poet Laureate tomorrow? Who is it? Where is the event going to be?

    Sad poem!

    The California poet laureate, Lee Herrick: https://arts.ca.gov/press-release/go...poet-laureate/

    I can assure you the event will likely be lowkey. Our new county poet laureate Stephen Meadows, and past county laureates will also attend at our public library in Placerville. I've known Stephen for maybe a handful of years: https://artsandcultureeldorado.org/poet-laureate/ and Taylor Graham, also noted in the link, is our Thursday at Two poetry leader. I may dust off a poem for the open microphone session... or not

    Intriguing poem on poetic images: "Time is the school in which we learn, / Time is the fire in which we burn."

    Korea+ California, interesting. Browsed poems by him on Poetry Foundation:
    https://www.poetryfoundation.org/pod...es-on-adoption. I wish you a nice event with you reading a poem at the open microphon session!

    "Carousel". Original and modern! Enjoyed!

    re "How Do You Know the Sky Is Falling?": Iīve also dificulties with some of these modern poems. Maybe they mean, what the reader wants them to mean. I looked for an analysis but found only a somewhat heavy article.

    Liked the poem and its recurrences:"Flute of life, pipe midst of Winter/Songs of golden days of summer".
