Hello poetic friends.

Summer is here, if not in weather so at least according to the calendar, and as usual we are giving you the chance to take a break. We will be closed for two weeks and return on July 17.

At 3:15 EST I will be broadcasting live on our Facebook page. So if you have not liked our page yet, please do.

I will be live for about 20 minutes and I will be able to follow your comments. I might read some of the linked poems but I will try to respond to as many of your comments as possible. If nothing else just pass by and click a like.

Afterwards I will leave the video here >so those who where absent during the broadcast can listen to it in arrears.

As for the Open Link, this is how it works:

Publish a poem on you blog or select an old favorite.
Link it up on Mr Linky below. Please use the link directly to the poem and not just to the blog.
Leave a comment here or on Facebook and take part in the fun.
Do your rounds, read and comment on the other submissions.
