the month of June trembled like a butterfly.
SUMMER POEM SWAP!!
Last year my daughter Elena painted the Summer Poem Swap logo. I used a painting of hers this year, too (a self-portrait). Does that make it a tradition yet?
Want to send someone a poem and receive a poem? It's a fun way to increase the amount of real mail you receive and also to give yourself deadlines. I like a good deadline, myself.
I'm doing the same thing this year as last year -- giving people the option of signing up for up to five swaps. You can pick whatever number you want. Here are the dates so you can decide:
Swap #1: Ends on June 22nd (Send out a poem by then)
Swap #2: Ends on July 6th
Swap #3: Ends on July 20th
Swap #4: Ends on August 3rd
Swap #5: Ends on August 17th
If you realize that you've been thrown a curveball and you can't do a swap you signed up for, please tell me so we can make sure the person you were assigned still gets a poem.
One more summer quote:
Bees do have a smell, you know, and if they don't they should, for their feet are dusted with spices from a million flowers.
― Ray Bradbury
