Sunday, August 7, 2011


Gathered round the table like Thanksgiving,
Tuesday afternoon is holiday for LBI writers.
They share the bounty, the fruits of their minds,
Anxiously anticipating others’ reactions,
Praise or pointed, always well meaning.
No jealous bees hoard their honey,
All are fed, fertilized and encouraged to bloom.

The event is joyous, a celebration. 
Wine is served in abundance. 
Words are the wine of writers.
They intoxicate the imagination.

Each writer is a parent
Lighting another candle
For the birthday table.
By the final page,
Faces glow in the illumination,
Fulfilled, thankful and longing like Ulysses
To return home, each Homer,
Story teller, myth maker, anxious
To sire a new sound for next week’s nectar.
