The Sultan's Dream

The Sultan’s Dream (Part of Living Poem) When it comes to walking, the jig’s up.No more fit lad sitting at the pub.No more flim-flam smiling with a limp. See how the legs totter and the torso leans.Do you know what a lame sultan dreams?Of reclining on a divan wearing pantaloons, Comparing his plight to a mountaineer’sNegotiating an icy bluff in a fierce wind,And then lounging in a tent to unwind. Which…See More

Hello, Kathryn SB - just stopping by here, as well.

If you ever need anything, let me know - I get a pretty good following on my Tender Graces blog and would be glad to put up any links to anything you need.

Kay, let me do my part in making even more people aware of your ncpoetlaureate.blogspot.com website--because it its certainly one of the most valuable resources around. I'm thinking that soon I can begin to create a poetry feature of a sort on "The Read," and feature links to your efforts. You can put a blog on this site that includes cut-and-paste excerpts from yours--as teasers--and then lead people to your laureate blog. There's also a group on this site--Sound-and-Sense Seekers--that involves some dynamic discussion among invitees. Thanks for all/Rob
