A poem? For me?? Squee!

The wonderful docstymie has written a poem in my honor. Not only that, he's directed my attention to a new form of poem called a kwansaba. The form was invented by the Poet Laureate of St. Louis, Eugene Redmond.

The rules are, apparently, simple:

Seven lines
Seven words per line
No more than seven letters per word

By all means, check out Doc's poem, if only because he labels me a "poetry goddess supreme". Hugs and kisses, Doc!

A Poem for You. A nice honor from a super nice friend. We should all be so lucky.

A tatoo I can handle but please oh please don't let it go to your head and shave your hair.

Yes, poetry goddess supreme, just remember I knew you back when!
I must say I love this form.
I have already written a few since your post!
Thanks for sharing.

Good job, Janice -- anything that prompts new writing is a good thing, in my book.
