I went to my first zoom book launch. I think this will be the new trend. There were about 40 participants and I liked it. Has anyone else experienced this?
I grew up on a bay with salt.
I always had a salty taste on my lips
and as soon as I approached home,
I smelled it in the air.
The salt dried out the skin and
you needed extra moisturizer after swimming.
We didn’t have salt in the sugar bowl
but we had rice in the salt shaker
to keep the salt flowing in the humidity.
Anyone else grow up on a bay?

i posted this Seguidilla, a Spanish seven line syllabic poem with the syllable counts. Someone suggested I post it without the syllable counts, so here it is:
Two oak trees bare their branches
Fractured by moon bright
ice on a lakefront ripples
Clouds capture the light
With glittering gem
Leafless solitary stems
I wander alone
Has anyone else tried this form?
