Most of us posted poems first thing in the morning, with some bailing in in the afternoon, and two as late as nine o'clock at night. We linked to each other and popped in and out of each other's poems all day, and other readers came along too ... the google analytics and statcounter stats prove it. It was indeed like an 'open-mike' session in cyberspace with the same excitement, stimulation, and sense of community that inspires.
I really enjoyed myself - reading and re-reading the poems, discovering poets and talents I didn't know, relishing those I did. Thank you to the Tuesday poets who paused long enough in their busy days to find a poem, to post it with links to other poets, and then sent out emails to encourage poets (two overseas) to join us.
I'm all on for next Tuesday and I know many of the Tuesday poets are too. So come by here then.
Meanwhile, here's Claire Beynon's poem which seems to me to sum up what I felt happened yesterday. Spiders, we all.
