  1. Salutations, Sarah,

    Hello, hello, hello in the last days of June. Sometimes I wish we had calendar-stoppage power, then, no, not. haha

    Did you stay up all night making this all-inclusive-all-amazing list? I loved reading this fun romp with words & amazed at how you fashioned the words to share complimentary syllabication with each other. ((Smile)) Like partners on a dance floor your words are. Good stuff.

    • Jan,

      My muse escaped me last night. I make myself spend an hour a day on writing, no matter what. That list was all that came into my mind.

      The year is half over. The sun is shining. Let’s put time on pause for this perfect day.

      Have a beautiful…

      Sarah

    • Dee,

      You have a gazillion poems that are absolutely supercalifragilisticexpialidocious (meaning
      totally awesome in this case). So you could spend 45 minutes of that hour on new writing
      and fifteen minutes of it posting those golden oldies that I love. (Just a suggestion : )

      Thank you for reading my silliness. My muse has truly run away and I am grasping at straws.
      Eventually the muse is bound to get embarrassed and give me a break.

  2. Hi Sarah

    Loved this entire list of definitive terms that encompass the role and nature of the poet. I will not pick one favorite because each one is so indicative of the poet in its own way. This was a delight to read this morning and put a smile on my face. Creative and true, thank you for these titles of beauty, wit and truth.

    Take care
    my best always,
    Wendy
