Wicked Little Grooves

I may be getting older, but I still love birthdays. I like the idea that I made it a whole other year going on some new adventures and taking on some new challenges. When I talked with my fellow April baby, Miss Magaly, about trying new things this upcoming year, we both realized we had talked about doing something collaborative before, but never had gotten around to it. So when she suggested it’d be fun to co-host a month long run of micro-poetry, I was thrilled to give it a go.

I also loved Magaly’s idea of making it a community effort. A birthday celebration ought to be as fun for the guests too, so I’d like to invite my readers to play along with me as well. You can help direct my flirtation with micro-poetry this month by suggesting song titles you think would inspire my Wicked Little Grooves on my Facebook page (I'm keeping the micro-poetry there to better organize my poetic efforts. I plan on being quite busy in April).

Also, for those of my readers who are visual artists, if you have a piece you’d like me to feature along with my poetry for Magaly's Dark Poetry for the Cruelest Month, please let me know. I’d like to let the world know what talented readers I have! As always, I will give full attribution to work you’ve created and include as many links as you’d like to the piece in question (a gallery of your works, your storefront where your works can be purchased, a Facebook page, etc.). As for my fellow word smiths, please consider joining Magaly's poem-palooza too. The attendees were all quite supportive of each other's efforts last year and it was a lot of fun to rise to the challenges meted out. 


I’m excited to see the suggestions I get. Remember, this is a co-hosted party; be sure to go to Magaly’s In Darker Words Facebook page and feed Magaly's muse with some of your favorite quotes, then follow it and her blog in April to see the finished products. You’ll be glad you did – the lady is a wicked awesome poet. Thanks for helping Magaly and I celebrate in grand style!

  8. Since I'm not on Facebook, I'll leave some song titles here. I'm looking forward to that new movie about Hank Williams that's about to hit the theatres, starring Tom Hiddleston, so here's a bunch of Hank Williams' classic song titles: Your Cheatin' Heart, I'm So Lonesome I Could Cry, Hey Good Lookin', There's a Tear in my Beer, Cold Cold Heart, Jambalaya -- okay, six is enough!

    1. Woot, thanks! OK, are you on Instagram at all? Magaly has been encouraging me to post pictures of the finished pieces there.

    2. No, I'm afraid the only social media site I'm on is Blogger. But if one can look at Instagram entries without being a member, maybe you can put a link and I can see them?

    3. It's worth a shot! I'll figure out some way to make it work.
