Year of Poetry Update - Week 31

New Arrival 
Not much poetry work done this week as I started my first full week of teaching. Prep time and exhaustion kept me down to just shy of 3.5 hours.

The Writing  

was limited to last Sunday and Tuesday night and while I did feel a bit disjointed/ distanced from the work, things had started to click by the second day. 

I am till working on my carving poem.  All things considered I am happy with it.


The Study

I completed noting the chapter On Secrets in  Mary Ruefle's, Madness Rack and Honey.


Close Reading


Following on from David Brooks Broad Bean Meditation, I began a reading of the poem it converses with, Les Murray's Broad Bean Sermon, which I think wins the award for the longest sentence in a poem I have ever read.
