Sponsored by Workhorse, Lexington Poetry Month is an easy to use
platform for poets to publish and share their work in an attractive
way. The community is supportive and diverse, commenting and
encouraging one another throughout June. Money we raise goes
to maintaining the cost of the website and publishing the yearly
anthology. Our goals are to provide every poet (~150) a copy of
the anthology, lower printing costs, and expand opportunities
offered during Lexington Poetry Month, such as featured readings
and poetry workshops.
Honestly, love the onomatopoeia of “seet.” Did we miss the cicadas? ❤️
Dang, it was supposed to be “sweet,” not “seeet,” and now it’s too late to fix! Stumbling at the finish line, I call that.
But it’s been a good run, dear Lexington Poetry Month folks! Really enjoyed reading y’all, hearing your thoughts, and getting to know some of you, at least a little bit. See you next year, God willing.
Kevin, I thought, perhaps, that was the case, but the “stumble” is more effective. The muse was looking after you in this one.
Kevin – I had seen your photography before, but I was glad to get a closer look at your poems this month! Very fulfilling, as has been the whole month of poetry bathing. PS Even heroes stumble, even fall face first in mud.
Thanks, Sylvia! Glad to hear you’ve seen my photos, too! I appreciate you, & others on here, so very much. A family of sorts, yes?
I’ve enjoyed reading your poems this month.
Thanks, Shaun! And likewise.
Return, again, and again, and again, and again………….
Thank you for writing and sharing Kevin.
Thank YOU, Manny!
What a good one to go out on.
Cacophony is muse
So nice to experience a wealth in your poetry this month.
Thanks, Mary, and likewise. I’ll be sending you an email about the second haiku class coming up at the Carnegie Center in November. Hope to see you there.
Your poems, wit and comments have been wonderful! Till next year!
Thanks, Linda! By the way, I’m teaching “The Art of the Haiku, Part 2” in early November at the Carnegie Center. Hope you’ll join us again.
love “sweet cacophony”
So many kinds of living, and writing — you’ve shown us that in the wealth of your poems this month. And in your generous comments. It’s been a pleasure!
Thanks, Libby! Let’s get together for lunch next time you’re in Lexington, shall we?

I found this mistake interesting!
Really like this little poem, Kevin. I’ve enjoyed your words!
Who knew, right? Thanks, Melva Sue! I’ve enjoyed reading you too.
It has been a break from the everyday world to read your well-crafted and thoughtful poetry.
Thanks, Kathleen. Likewise!
