Poetry Posts are a bi-monthly email of new poems by Phyllis Stowell with the intention of carrying on a poetic dialogue. Individuals who wish to respond are invited to send to me a quote, a lyrical paragraph or a poem of their own. If appropriate, I will post this response in the GUEST folder. If individuals prefer to write something personal not for the GUEST folder, I will respond by email. Posts will be archived for a limited period of time.
