Wow! That was a jam-packed weekend
at When Words Collide, Calgary,
so many good presentations
and interesting people to see.
I’m flying home as I write this
with gratitude filling my mind-
to Catherine for inviting me,
and everyone being so kind.
Thanks, Randy McCharles, committee,
and all the helpful volunteers.
The weekend was a huge success
it’s grown so much over the years.
I attended as a poet
as it’s what I know, what I do.
I write a poem each morning
so I always have one that’s new.
Thank you to those who attended
my panels and presentation.
Poetry is alive and well
and holds its own fascination.
