mike Maher., one of the editors at Sea Giraffe and all around super human and great guy (and writer of this post), is featured as a Beautiful Bloom over at Poetic Bloomings, a great website run by people who love poetry and support the continuous creation of new poetry.
The poem is entitled “But I still hear your ghost in these old Punk Rock Clubs.” For those of you who recognize the line, it is taken from the song “Hammers and Strings” by Jack’s Mannequin. And for those of you saying “you thief!” – the poem was written in response to a prompt which called for a poem inspired by music. More specifically, it called for the writer to take a line from one of his/her favorite songs and make it the title of a poem. So, uhh, that’s why the poem is titled “But I still hear your ghost in these old Punk Rock Clubs.”
Please, go over and visit Poetic Bloomings, not just to appreciate my fantastic poem, but to see the great movement they are nurturing over there. And if you are a writer, consider returning to their site and writing poetry of your own in response to their prompts.
For the internet-challenged (congratulations on finding your way to this blog, by the way), every time I have written Poetic Bloomings, it has been linked to the location of the poem their website.
And now, back to reading submissions. Thanks for stopping by.
