Poetry Update #1

I've been at Berton House for 23 days now and have only written 3 tankas and part of a sonnet. I'd hoped to write a poem a day. HA!

The three tanka are to submit to Gusts, a Canadian tanka magazine.

The sonnet is for a project called POEtry, where a bunch of poets have to take a well-known poem and turn it into a genre poem (science fiction, fantasy, horror, etc.). I chose Donne's Holy Sonnet X. Which I'm turning into a hopefully-humorous SF poem. Although technically what I'm writing is more like this:

Science Fiction Writer be not proud...

The submissions deadline for both is on August 15th.

Wish me luck!
