Welcome to the 4th edition of The Daily Poet, our online poetry publishing adventure and the first new poem of 2010.
We regularly publish new poems online and welcome any submissions to have your poetry published on TheMAGZine website.
I’ve been reading some of the articles in my new 2010 Poet’s Market directory and getting a bit depressed, as there is so much work to do in getting poetry published and starting a publishing company, and I haven’t been spending enough time on either lately.
But instead of letting it get me down, I’m trying to move forward and dedicate a block of time to these tasks every single day in 2010.
My first order of business is getting together a group of my more recent poems that I feel are in publishable condition and start sending them out to poetry magazines and other alternative poetry publishers.
So I’m hoping to work out some of my poems in the pages of The Daily Poet.
It’s not like anybody else is submitting poetry at this point, so I might as well publish my own, and then from here I’ll work out which ones to submit to which poetry publishing magazines, and I’ll outline the steps I take along the way.
Hopefully, I can get some of my poetry published in even the smallest magazines in 2010 if I’m lucky.
And without further delay, here is today’s edition of The Daily Poet.
There’s a box I am looking for
that holds more than its name entails,
not just jewels and precious metals,
but diamonds of the heart, hardened coals
that I’m trying to soften in our relationship,
and when I asked the elder who owns the thrift shop
she hadn’t seen one in her store for a long time
and the young woman at the decorative store
who shouted out from behind the cluster
where I couldn’t see her didn’t have any either
even though they sold wooden chests and costume jewelry,
but I’m looking for something with compartments
and secret drawers that open to hidden treasures
that can be tucked away, and silk linens that display
hanging charms and ring settings when it opens,
a sealed unit that locks securely with a key
yet is crafted finely to project its luxury from within,
complex in its structure but solid in its singularity,
something to be admired and measured on its own
where we store our gemstones and other odds and ends.
Thank you very much for reading, we really appreciate it. Please feel free to leave comments below on the poem or otherwise.

I was looking for poetry blogs when I stumbled across your blog. My jewellry box is a suitcase tucked under my bed filled with all sorts of gems. The first socks my eight year old ever wore and my eldest daughter’s favourite pullover. The type of jewellry box you seek is might take a while to find or have you found it already?
Thank you so much for your comment. I really appreciate you taking the time to visit my site.
It sounds like you’ve collected some beautiful gems in your jewelry box.
I’m still searching for mine, but I have hope that I will find it one day.
Good luck to you in everything.

Ooooh….I love these kinds of pictures. I can totally relate to the pleasure of standing back and regarding one’s orderly possessions. Disorganization has an equal and opposite effect on me and my house, unfortunately, tends towards the latter. I see organization as an ongoing practice — the end result is wonderful, but the path towards it is equally valuable. It’s like gardening — one can make progress, but is never done.

It’s a relief to find someone who can explain things so well

If people on here don’t know what exactly this is, I’d suggest it’s at least as bad as the skunk stories from yesterday.You get a can of ‘dead paint’, you won’t forget it for a long time.

Tony – good stuff as always. Telluride race looks excellent but comes at a tough spot in the calendar. Not too far after HR, and only a week before Leadville and Pikes.As nutty as it sounds, I have wondered if that new single track is put in to meet ADA requirements of some sort. I think I recall it adding a kilo to the route when I compared the two. It is a nice approach but that more direct valley was pretty.I think I hike every step above the Nebel Horn Saddle everytime.
