Poetry, Fibs, and Me

It's a good week for me to be a lover of poetry. First the Poetry Friday round-up, with a great list of contributors and some conversation about my "song-lyrics-as-poetry" post. And now, my poetry life gets even better.

The Fib Review, issue 1, has been published.

And I'm in it.

Along with 5 other poets, including Douglas Twitchell, the genius behind the Quote Puzzler site.

The Fib Review is an online literary journal created by R.G. Rader. The Fib itself is the brainchild of our own GottaBook Greg.

And I have to say, the Fib Review design (how the site looks) is beautiful.

Congratulations, Nancy!

I had never heard of "Fib" poems before. I'll have to try writing one instead of telling one.
Have you ever written any cinquains?

In EHOES FOR THE EYE, a poetry book I reviewed on Friday, there is a brief author's note at the beginning that explains about Leonardo Fibonacci and the number series he developed.

Congrats! My favorite of yours is the middle one, on grief. It's definitely going into my commonplace book. :-)

Nicely done, Nancy! The Review does look lovely. Congrats to R.G. for getting it together.

But this finally forces me to ask you something I've wondered for some time. In your profile, what's with this "wannabe poet" appelation??? You be one, don'tcha think?

Thanks Elaine, Erin and Greg!

Greg, I guess I'd say I'm a poet, but I'd love to be a POET.
