DSC_0041What a year.

Installing poems @ Los Angeles, Port Townsend, Kelowna, Penticton, and Vancouver.

Performing poetry on the streets, in cafes, libraries, churches, and in homes.

Writing poetry and submitting and having some published in literary mags and elsewhere.

Stretching and growing through all of the above.

Yes, a very good year. I am exponentially blessed.

And now I shall rest until the New Year.  And I shall bask in the good company of family and friends. And I shall be glad.

For words that pop up and expand in 2014,

Bring your poems, he said!!!


And I did! (thanks, babe!)

Following are photos of some pop-up-poems, in the thick of our family summer vacation, in Southern California.

So, bring what you’ve got, give what you have. Every moment is an opportunity to share your small and unique offerings with the world!

Overheard on the bike path, “Are these poems yours?” “May I take one home for my sister, I think she’ll like it?”

Overseen from our hotel balcony, a woman on a park bench, pop-up-poem in hand, reading intently for a long time.

Observed as I installed my poems… chalk words written on surfaces, interesting messages.



Overtaken by voices speaking in creative and unique ways. In this case, the hood of a surfing van, molded and painted, words wild and free.
