Blogging Poetry

The lovely thing about posting poetry on this blog is it doesn't have to be perfect. Submitting a poem elsewhere means paying attention to words, rhythm, sustained image, etc. But here I can concentrate on personal feeling--does the poem capture my intent in writing it? If I'm satisfied with its word play, emotion, use of form or fun, then I share the poem. Self-indulgent? Yes, but no one's compelled to read them.
