It means we're working our asses off behind the scenes while trying to find time to write and publicly comment on the work of others.

I don't know how you do it, either, but we love your dedication!! This is a mammoth celebration of a very important skill.

Poetry is an unexpected rescue tool.
I believe it saves lives
Every year.

Go DUP!
Ahavati!!
And team NaPo!!!

Okay...

I have to go back to bed...
I have a weird life

One day writing will be
a tool that saves my life...

If it hasn't already

EPISODE 6/30

"Why you devious distemporal demi-goddish dipstick!"

As Miss Indie of Nine was busy alliterating OrQ, a giant eye appeared on the bridge's view screen.

It was more unnerving than the OrQ selfies!

"I recognize that iris anywhere!" cried out Dug. "It belongs to our Webmistress, Vice Admiral of the Poetic Federation!"

And her British accent came over the loudspeaker in a crackled tone. "Poet Wardens, I ----- to you now ----- Good and Bad Newses. First, ---- Good Newses. I have ---- stolen Muses."

Almost everyone cheered - even T'PoetsRevenge, who was space walking on the roof of the Stanza and adjusting the television antenna.

"Drat!" cried OrQ. "She must have pilfered the Muses from my Infinite Bag of Holding while I was getting a lump of sugar for her tea!"

"That's right," the Vice Admiral concurred. "I couldn't allow you to play such a devious prank on our NaPoWriMo 2020 participants. Unfortunately, the Bad Newses is, shortly after the tea party, I was abducted by a pair of Impostraphes. They took possession of the Muses and are holding me as their hostage on Planet Quoteunquote!"

And that in itself was even more Badder Newses, because Impostraphes traveling in pairs were difficult to distinguish from the planet's natives, the Quotations - ruled by the royal monarchs known across the galaxy as the Marks Brothers.

"This is an effin quotastrophe!" cried Bones McTallen. "Quoteunquote is on the other side of the Universe, our dilithium batteries are only at sixty-eight percent charge, and we haven't even had had lunch yet!"

Now everyone who publishes poems that have anything to do with the current pandemic, or any pandemic, can add it as a hashtag.  Once the required total is met, people will be able to tap on it and access the gallery of growing pieces in that category.

That would be the Pale Horse
referenced in the Book of Revelations, right?

that would depend on if you count the pandemic as pestilence or death. the pale horse is ridden by death in the book of revelation. the white horse is pestilence.

such lovely monday morning chatter!

ah so!
i was reading up on how the bible has many predictions about two-thirds and or a quarter of the population perishing due to pestilence.

& then i came upon this article:

Do you mean now poems, moving forward, or does this include those written since the start of the pandemic?
