Okay, so it’s not the year of the dragon quite yet, but nevertheless, here we are. I think I can speak for a lot of us in saying that 2011 was a rough year in one way or another, and I can’t think of any better way to start 2012—also the one year anniversary of Yay Words!—than with poetry. Wonderful, heartfelt poetry and art.
There’s not much to say other than I’m overwhelmed by how generously everyone offered up their work for inclusion. Up until the very last minute, I was receiving surprises in my inbox. I hope they delight everyone as much as they’ve delighted me. Be sure to check out the links in the back to explore the websites and blogs of the contributing poets and artists. Find yourself some new reading for the new year.
Thanks to everyone who sent their art and poetry, and worked with me to give everything that spit and shine! It’s been wonderful to work and collaborate with old and new friends— both on this project and throughout the year.
Happy and blessed New Year! Keep creating!
