I'm signed up for Peace in February

I participated in this effort another time and didn't entirely follow through. This time around I will. I promise. What?! There is a postcard project; a poetry on postcards project. The lady that started this effort asks if any poets want to send other poets postcards that have poetry written on them. I said yes. The instigator lady then sent me 28 names. Yup. I have agreed to produce 28 bits and pieces of poetry. I've got to get my rump to the post office this week and start thinking about possible poetry before the end of January cause it takes a couple of days for the postcards to reach folks. Some folks are super creative and make up their own postcards besides sending their literary work. I love the idea of hearing from folks that live in places that I never heard of. Should be interesting mail in February!

What a great idea but 28 pieces of poetry sounds a lot. Good luck with it. I wonder which countries your postcards will come from.

@JudyEv I believe its mostly the US but to get poetry from a stranger that lives in Colorado is pretty exciting to me. Yes, 28 pieces of poetry intimidates me.

@sallypup That's still good even from within the USA. It's a big country.

@JudyEv I only have traveled in a few places in the US. Here on My Lot, somebody from Vermont is as interesting to me as say you in Australia.

@Courtlynn I could. I will have to figure out short poetry cause postcards are pretty small!

I know I cannot do that, I lost my postcards once when we were sending them around on here.

It does sound interesting but I think it would stress me out, sometimes I can write lots of poetry at others I am dry as a bone. lol

@BelleStarr That's not a bad idea. A couple of Christmas's I sent little poems to family. I guess I can do the same in February but not necessarily anything about creches and Santa!

Yes, it should be great mail in February. I hope you can get all those poems written. I couldn't do it. I might write poetry, but not on demand like that.

@jstory07 I hope it is. I am just finished with a short story so now I can concentrate on dreaming up some little poems.

What a cute idea. I am not a big fan of poetry anymore but think this is a wonderful idea for poetry lovers and postcard collectors!
