I just have to say a hearty thank you:
For reading along. For sharing links via Facebook and forwarding poems via email. For suggesting or submitting poems. For bearing with technical problems and "growing pains." For sending your messages of appreciation and telling me stories. For making me smile, even laugh. Sometimes, for bringing tears. For inspiring me. Every day, I meet a steady trickle of you, electronically and via snail mail, from around the world.
When I began this project, I never realized I'd feel so connected to the readers of these poems. You are a blessing.
So, with a deep bow of gratitude:
Ke a leboga
Moving my flat hand forward from my chin
(الاسم) شكرا لك
P.S. No, I'm not saying "thanks" because I'm calling it quits.
I just like to say it now and then.
I don't do it enough.
