While I get this blog thing worked out, I thought I would use it mainly for poetry. I have called it “From the Wings” because it can mean a number of different things. Someone in the wings can be preparing to go onstage, observing what’s happening onstage from a different perspective to the audience, or even ready to prompt a player; there is also the interpretation of being high above (birds). Probably the bottom line is though, that I had to come up with a name that no one else had, and I kind of liked it.
I will pop some poetry up as soon as I work out the spacing issues that I’m struggling with at the moment.
I only ever read one poem in a sitting and this evening my first and only is your second of hopefully many. What a lovely evocation, Matt.
Perhaps over time your poetry will be interspersed with story and reflection. I hope so. I value all three when they come from one such as you.
