Only 92 more to go I suppose, but we’re humming along over here. In just a week we’ve already gotten a submission inspired by a previous #100Days100Poems post. With that, I present to you, from the Mad Sonneteer, an offering that, in this instance, is not a sonnet. There’s probably a Magritte reference in there, somewhere.


One Step Back

A Haiku for Inauguration Day 2017
Inspired by Catherine Harren Barufaldi
& Melania Trump

One step back, is all;
the world only spins forward
because love trumps hate!

For the first 100 days of the Trumpet administration, this blog will feature a new poem of protest, by my own hand and by others. They will be polished gems, or rough cut drafts of rage, or in process pieces searching for peace. They may be haiku or tanka, limericks or lyrics, verses free or fettered. If you would like to submit to this endeavor, please send an email, with poem saved as a word document (.docx) to waxyandpoetic AT gmail DOT com. All rights remain with the author. VISUAL ARTISTS ! Do you have something visually poetic that you’d like to submit? GO FOR IT!
Please address any formatting preferences in your email. I will post submissions time permitting, with at least one per day. Editing will be limited to obvious errors of spelling and the like.

Read, follow, share, re-tweet, submit, live, love, spread light! Don’t forget to use #100Days100Poems !
