Wordy Wednesday Poems



I'm mentioned in this book of poems: "Wednesday," by Cassie Premo Steele, along with 300 others. The concept for this book is amazing-what a way to use Facebook! From the book description on Amazon:


"Since June 2010, Cassie Premo Steele has been inviting friends, fellow artists, clients, and colleagues to join her in a poetry writing collaboration. Every Wednesday she asks friends to add a word to a Facebook thread and constructs a poem that weaves the spirit and intentions of all those words into one piece of writing. The result is this book. In it you will find a wide range of subjects and ideas contributed by more than 300 people from all around the world. It is an exploration on collaboration and on the artistic task of creating one song out of a multitude of different voices."


The poem I participated in is on page 135, "A Deeper Independence." You can read more on the book-and see a featured poem from it-at Cassie Premo Steele's website. Grab a copy here, if you wish.
