The power of the internet is enormous. It took fewer than 24 hours after we posted our semi-satirical “The Night Before Chuseok” before an email landed in our email box.
We were chuffed to hear that our brilliant poetry was being considered by the Best Poems Encyclopedia for publication along with the works of such great poets as Pablo Neruda, Robert Frost and Maya Angelou, even though Frost is the only poet on that list we really care for.
Here is the email:
Hello from the editors of Best Poems Encyclopedia,
I see that you’re a poet and a writer, and I would love to connect
with you, so I can invite you to submit your texts for 2011 Best Poems
Awards and featured poets section. This month poets are Kelle Groom
and Martina Newberry for contemporary poets and Pablo Neruda, Robert
Frost and Maya Angelou for all time famous poets.
LOL.. I’m not sure what they are after, but I’m reasonably sure it isn’t me.^^
