Milestone: 1000th post

This is the 1000th post on M. Sakran’s blog of and about poetry and poetry related things.




1000 posts is a lot of posts.  A lot.

At the start, it seemed like after thirty posts there were no new ideas.  Now there are 1000 posts.  That’s a lot of posts.

Hopefully everyone who has read anything on this blog at any time has liked it.  Hopefully you were entertained, inspired or you learned something.  Hopefully you got something from all of this.

This blog has been an experience.  Posting a post virtually every weekday has been fun, inspiring, challenging, interesting and many other adjectives.  It has been an experience.

As it stands now, the blog will continue with much of the same.  The current category topics of poems, poetry topic ideas, poems with explanations, artwork for inspiration, photography for inspiration, bilingual poems, experimental poetry forms and poetry essays will continue.

In the future, new categories may be added.  Some possibilities include: reviews of poetry books, interviews with poets, and contributed poems.  There are other possibilities as well.

Hopefully everyone who reads will keep reading and if you don’t regularly read, hopefully you will start.

Thank you to everyone.

Below is a poem, because, well … why not?

The millipede,
left footprints in the sand,
hopefully they will be seen,
before the waves,
wash them away.
