Friday Poetry Fest

This is an experiment, dear ones.  I'm trying to master Mr. Linky, and do my part to bridge the One Stop gap in which good people reached an impasse. BTW--- the Mr. Linky site said this title was available but it is not unique to this meme-- disregard the links to a home page. This is the home page for the meme. xj

You know how these challenges work:  when Mr Linky is up, enter, and spread the word that another meme is in place to share your work with the online literary community. Be sure to comment on others' work. I also highly recommend the Monday poetry meme Magpie Tales.  You can reach me at jenneandrews2010@gmail.com .
