dverselogoThis weekend my family had the privilege of hosting Steve E and his wife. You may know Steve, he posts here pretty regularly on OpenLinkNight. They arrived from Florida Friday and left early Monday to continue their journey.

While they were here Steve celebrated his 80th birthday, while my wife and I celebrated our 17th wedding anniversary. We all went out to a nice little Italian restaurant, La Villa.

On Saturday, we all took a little hike along the old railway to walk through the tunnel in the mountain, where Steve got a little understanding on the creative license poet’s use…

“That is the longest quarter mile I ever hiked.”

“I might have been off just a little bit.”

Smiles. It was just a little longer, but what’s an extra mile among friends. Thing is I met Steve online, through poetry. This is the second year we have lived a bit together for his vacation. Don’t know about you but that trips me out sometimes—

and that is what is so cool about what we do here as well. You never know who you might meet…and what table you may be sharing a couple years from now.

Welcome to OpenLinkNight, my name is Brian Miller and its my privilege to be your host tonight. If you are new here, let me tell you how it works:

  • Write a poem and post it to your webpage
  • Click the Mr. Linky button below and enter your name & the direct URL to your webpage
  • There, you will also find others that have linked in…Read, comment, make friends, give feedback, mingle, whatever you want to call it—but don’t miss this step—you don’t want to be a link dropper, it’s a bad rep, just saying.
  • Promote yourself on social media, if you use @dversepoets we will find you a bit easier and help promote you.
  • Have fun.

And if you are ever in Virginia, drop me a line, we’ll see if we can’t have dinner or something. See you out on the trail.  ~Brian Miller
