Poetic Bloomings Resolve for poetry

Wedding Vows to My Muse


My darling Muse,

I promise

to nurture you through the bread of the Word

and wine of the Spirit.


I promise

to strengthen you by reading works of other poets

and poetry how-to books (including doing the exercises)

and continuing to write a poem a day.


I promise to

make you happy

by increasing my skills

in the use of metaphor, details, meter and rhyme.


I promise

to strengthen our social life as a couple

by participating on poetry blogs and challenges

and by helping and encouraging friends through poetry.


I promise

to not hold you back,                         

by publishing poetry books and

submitting poems to magazines and journals.



This I promise, for better or worse, in 2013.
