Milestone: Three Year Anniversary

Today is the three year anniversary of the very first post on M. Sakran’s blog of and about poetry and poetry related things.


Three years.

It’s been a lot.  There have been so many posts about so many different things.  It has been an experience doing it all.  There is way too much that could be said about writing over seven hundred and fifty posts.

Here’s a haiku just to say a little:

pebbles in the pond,
seven hundred and more,
so many ripples
