Today is the five year anniversary of the first post on M. Sakran’s blog of and about poetry and poetry related things.
Five years is a long time. It feels like a long time. Including this post, there have been 1,263 posts on this blog. That feels like a lot of posts.
Shortly after the blog was started, there was some concern about what to post. It seemed like there were no new ideas. Of course, something was found.
There are many ideas to the blog.
Part of the idea of the blog is to educate readers. That’s the purpose of the poems with explanations and the poetry essays.
Part of the idea of the blog is to give readers ideas for poetry. That’s the purpose of the poetry topic ideas, artworks to inspire poetry, and photography to inspire poetry.
Part of the idea of the blog is to help readers write poetry. That’s the purpose of the experimental poetry forms.
Of course, part of the idea of the blog is to give readers poems to read. That’s the purpose of the poems and the bilingual poems.
Hopefully readers have benefited from all of this. Hopefully some people out there have gotten something from it.
