My book of poetry and travel photographs, Journeys, Destinations, Routes, was written in
1998 and updated in 2004. Although several poems from the book have been included on the site from year to year, none are included this year. For 2011, all poems are new poems to accompany the summer theme. Click

WORD GAMES: According to the Oxford Guide to Word Games, in the days when poetry was favored by the leisure classes, people turned their attention to playing games and tricks with poems. Though some are ancient, the heyday of most of these games was in the 1700s and 1800s. Most of those poetry games are seldom found now. Each of this summer's poems will incorporate a format from one of those games, to be explained on the accompanying poetry pages.
