Congratulations! (and a small request)

Happy Sunday, friends!

Tomorrow marks the halfway point for those of us participating in the Blogging from A to Z Challenge. Congratulations to everyone who has made it this far, and good luck with the rest of your posts!

Tomorrow also marks the halfway point in another challenge I'm participating in—the Pulitzer Remix. For those who haven't heard of the project, here's a brief explanation of what it's all about, taken from the Pulitzer Remix site:

"Eighty-five poets are creating found poetry from the 85 Pulitzer Prize-winning works of fiction as part of Pulitzer Remix, a 2013 National Poetry Month initiative. Each poet will post one poem per day on this website during the month of April, resulting in the creation of more than 2,500 poems by the project’s conclusion."

It's really a fascinating project, and I'm thrilled that I was one of the poets chosen to participate! I'm writing daily haiku taken from words I've found and remixed in John Updike's Rabbit is Rich.

On to my request: If you have a moment, please go to the Remix site and take a look at my haiku for today. You can find it here. Now, I've said this before and I'll continue to say it: Thank you so much to those of you who have been reading and commenting on my poems. I know April is a busy month for a lot of us, and I appreciate your support more than you know!


Wishing you all a beautiful and relaxing Sunday. ☺

  5. This has been quite a tiring challenge. Not because of the posts I wrote (24 are done-I still need to write ones for 'Q' and 'Z') but because I like to read and comment on AT LEAST everyone who's stopped by the lunatic asylum. It is a lot of fun, but tiring, as I know you'd agree. Two more weeks!

    1. Oh, I completely agree. I went and got myself a bad cold partly because I'm up all night reading and commenting (and writing poems). Two more weeks, and then I think we all should take a vacation!

  6. I can't believe we are half way there.... I must say that I'm am starting to hit that writer's block pretty hard. I haven't even posted for today for the NaPoWriMo challenge. I have really enjoyed reading your post and your poems are always very inspiring.

    Happy Sunday!

  7. Love the imagery in your haiku - it's certainly cold enough for autumn fog *shakes fist at mother nature's hiatus* Best of luck on the remaining challenge:)

  8. I don't know how you are doing these two things at once. I'm sure that even with writing Haiku, the amount of time it takes to express so much in so few words is more demanding than writing a paragraph that sometimes says so little with so much. Hmmmmm was that profound or what???LOL!!!! And here you are on your day off...visiting and commenting...thanks for stopping by my Sunday Summary.

    Loved the imagery in today's Haiku.

    1. There are days when I think I'm crazy for attempting two things, Sue! :)

      Yes, the haiku takes much longer than the blog posts. Some days, I'm happy if I write one line of poetry that I like. Thank you for your kind comments. I appreciate them.

  9. Ditto Sue --
    I'm glad to be at the half-way point.

    1. Thanks, Wendy. :)

      I'm glad we're here, too. I'm thinking that a few days off from blogging in May might be just what I need. We'll see...

  15. You're right Dana - can't believe we are half way there with the A to Z Blog Challenge. Am afraid the last half of the letters are a bit more obscure and difficult!!
    Thank you for dropping by - my question to you -- how do you have your comments set up so that you can "reply"? I would love to do that, but not sure where and how to set it up!!
    Would appreciate your help!

  16. Let's see: Under "settings," go to "Posts and Comments." On that page, you'll see the words "Comment Location." I have mine set to embedded. I hope that helps. I'm not great with this technical stuff either. :)
