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!

This is full of delight. May the dragons talk to us in the broad daylight and sing us even more alive than we already are.
All I can say is I never met a dragon I didn’t like. I never met a dragon, but I liked its language a lot…

My favourite dragon of all is Dragon aka Lizard Lips who loves Cabbages and Bog Myrtle:
And Jane is one of my biggest heroes too!

That’s a great link, Alan. I recently checked out Peter, Paul and Mary’s Puff the Magic Dragon song….
Dragonful way to start the new year! Happy new year Aubrie!
Happy new year to you as well!
I love Asian dragons. In fact, they are the theme of the third book in my trilogy “Legends”. It will be entitled: Legend of the Dragon’s Gate, that I hope to have finished before the end of this year. I really enjoyed the dragon video. Beautiful and inspirational.
Nice! Best of luck to you in the year of the dragon to finish up your book. 🙂
And thanks for the sharing on your won blog—I hope your readers enjoy it!
The artist who did the cover and some of the artwork inside has more of her dragons and other wonderful artwork on her artist Facebook page.

Like LidiaR I too really love Asian dragons. So, it was a wonderful discovery to find your e-book. I am thoroughly enjoying a slow reading & viewing of each page.
Glad to see you’ve found your way here, Tom! Also glad to hear you’re enjoying this little collection.
