Tuesday Poem First Birthday!!!

Tuesday Poem is One Year Old this week. We poets from NZ, Australia, the US and the UK, who are part of this wonderful community, are posting a communal birthday poem to celebrate.

It's called 'Tuesday' and I'm first up at 12:01 AM on Tuesday morning posting my 1-2 lines, followed by my co-curator Claire Beynon with hers in the early morning  ... and off we go from there, line by line, poet by poet (26 of us are taking part at last count) until the poem is done one week later...

The idea being that we all get a go, and our blogreaders get to see a poem unfold. And why 'Tuesday'? Well, you'd be surprised how many people end up on our site looking for a poem about Tuesday.

The tricky thing is the different time zones - Philadelphia is different from Seattle which is different from Melbourne which is different from London which is different from Wellington. To add to the difficulties, we've just come out of Daylight Saving in this neck of the woods. But everyone seems amazingly sanguine about it all.

Tuesday PoemI have a spooky feeling this might be a world first. So do pop along to www.tuesdaypoem.blogspot.com and catch a glimpse...

We're an amazing bunch really. Happy Birthday to us! And thanks to all of you who have been part of TP this first wonderful year - visiting, commenting, sharing our blog on yours, donating your poems ...

Dear Mary and Claire, thank you for the way our community has come together, how you've nurtured Tuesday Poem and all her poets, one by one. It's been a wonderful experience to share poems and read other poets' work, so different from one's own. Happy Birthday, Tuesday Poem, and thanks, everyone. xo

Brilliant work, Mary.
And like all brilliant work 99% perspiration, I'm sure
