Celebrating a Year

August 15, 2010

with 8 comments

An industrious domestic day, with a surprise. My last poem got picked up by a search engine and got an extra 80 hits today. Since it had already gone over 100 last week it is now my absolutely most-read poem ever. I know these numbers are drops of rain in the ocean of the internet, and I wrote just as seriously for my 2 readers when I started out. But it still makes me smile to think of all those people, perhaps reading a pantoum for the first time. Fun!
