1996-2016: A Sample of 20 Years

I thought I’d do something a little different for the obligatory New Year’s post this year and build a new page that makes it possible to read the jumble of poetry on this site in a semi-chronological order. And while I’m at it I picked one poem from each of 20 years to re-share. Except 2007 so it’s really a scam and you only get 19 poems for the price of 20. 😉  These are some of my favorites, the more enduring and endearing poems, the ones that seem to have aged best. Heck, I turned 13 in 1996 and I kinda think from 2017 maybe I was wiser as a kid than I am now. Please enjoy and let me know what you think!

About m

My ego wants to think I'm a writer but my heart knows I'm just another one of God's Kids who sometimes has words to say. 2.5 human kids and 3 feline kids call me Mom. Or Mooooooom. Or mewom, depending which you ask. My most recent completed endeavor was finishing BA's in Religious Studies and American Studies. I don't remember what free time is but I think I like to spend it sleeping or playing in the mud on a river bank.
