Poetry Project December – Mid-Year Reflection

Happy December, poetry readers!

We started this project, in its most recent incarnation, six months ago and it’s time to take a moment to look back at what we’ve done and think about how we’d like the rest of the year to go. For this month’s Poetry Project, if you’re so inclined, answer the questions below.

As always, you can link up to any post from the month of December, as long as it is about poetry. Post about your favorite holiday poem or share with us any poem that strikes your fancy, holiday related or no.

1) What has been the most rewarding aspect of The Poetry Project so far?
2) What is your favorite post from a fellow Poetry Project participant this year?
3) What is your favorite poem that you have read because of The Poetry Project?
4) What are some poetry-related goals you’d like to set for the coming year?
5) Do you have any suggestions for The Poetry Project in 2013? What would you like to see happen?
6) Share with us one line of poetry that you think we need to read.
7) Is there a new poet that you have discovered through The Poetry Project?
8) Anything else you would like to share?

As always, thank you all for participating! This time of year is all about remembering what we’re thankful for and so incredibly thankful for everyone who has taken time out of their day to post about poetry and then share it with us.

Please link up to your December poetry posts in the linky below.

  1. Happy December, Lu!

    1. Favorite aspect of the Poetry Project: the fact that we can post whenever we feel like it and we don’t have to go by the month’s theme.

    2. Favorite P.P. post: a post you did on Pablo Neruda.

    3. N/A I read poetry just because I feel like it.

    4. My poetry-related goals for next year is to read every book of poetry that I own along with re-watching Il Postino and several bios on some of my favorite poets.

    5. I think you and Kelly should just keep up the good work!

    6. One line of poetry that I think you should read. . .hmmm. That’s kind of hard. Okay Lucille Clifton’s “The Times”// It is hard to remain human on a day when birds perch weeping in the trees and the squirrel eyes do not look away bu the dog ones do in pity. . . I love that poem.

    7. No, I haven’t discovered any new poets yet through the project.

    8. I can’t wait to see what’s in store for next year!

  2. The more I thought about a holiday poem, the more I thought about a poem that has made me think about how my family can get along with each other as we all get older and more curmudgeonly. Perhaps it’s the “dark side” of the holidays. That’s one thing poetry is for, penetrating the darkness a little.
