Poetry Exchange

Many of you enjoy writing or reading poetry, so this might be just the thing for you.

Felicity Harley has made me aware of this new idea from her and Karin Cordry, where everyone can share and exchange poetry that they have written, or poems that mean something to them.

If you would like to take part, just follow the instructions and links below.

Dear Friends and colleagues,
We’re starting a collective, constructive, and hopefully uplifting exchange. It’s a one-time thing and we hope you will participate. We have picked those we think would be willing and would make it fun.

Please send a poem to the person whose name is in position 1 below (even if you don’t know them), with the email subject Poem Exchange. It should be a favorite text/verse/meditation that has affected you in difficult times. Or not. Don’t agonize over it. If you’d like to send a poem in your own language and provide a translation, please do so!David Boule dwboule@gmail.com

Jill Alexander maxmoxmyer@gmail.com
Felicity Harley felicity.a.harley@gmail.com

After you’ve sent the short poem/verse/quote/etc. to the person in position 1, and only that person, copy this letter into a new email. Move the name in position 2 to position 1, and put your name in position 2. Only those two names should show in the new email. Send it to 20ish friends BCC (blind copy).

Seldom does anyone drop out because we all need new pleasures. The turnaround is fast, as there are only two names on the list, and you only have to do it once. Stay safe and well!

  1. I think it started as a great idea but I’ve now had dozens of these requests in my inbox. I’m not taking part because I’d spend my whole day sending out poems and there would be no time to read the ones coming in πŸ™‚
