Imbolc Brigid in the blogosphere poetry slam

WHAT: A Bloggers (Silent) Poetry Reading

WHEN: Anytime February 2, 2009

WHERE: Your blog

WHY: To celebrate the Feast of Brigid, aka Groundhog Day

HOW: Select a poem you like - by a favourite poet or one of your own - to post February 2nd.

RSVP: If you plan to publish, feel free to leave a comment and link on this post. Last year when the call went out there was more poetry in cyberspace than I could keep track of. So, link to whoever you hear about this from and a mighty web of poetry will be spun.

Feel free to pass this invitation on to any and all bloggers.

I've done this the past few years and will certainly be taking part again this year. Thanks to Reya and Deborah Oak for reminding me:)

I figure this is a good time to say hello. I'm not sure how I stumbled on your blog, but since having done so, I've enjoyed it.

Anyway, I will participate in the poetry event and have posted it on my blog!

Good luck, and happy knitting!

I love the colours you've used - it's been so miserable here the last few days, such a bright splash of colour is very welcolme!
