Australian poet and blogger friend Gabrielle Bryden has written a poem about my koi and remembers our mutual friend the late Paul Squires in whose poetry magic got caught using words. I feel very honored to have my koi swim in a poem, and when I tell the koi they will be splashing. Read it, experience it, here.
As some readers have already discovered, those who popped over for a squiz, I was a guest blogger at Gabrielle Bryden’s Blog. Gabrielle is the Australian poet I met via the confluence of Paul Squires’s poetry at Gingatao and Chinese silky chickens and hamster jealousies too complex to relate here. Suffice it to say, I’m delighted to be featured there. And the Koi are delighted as well. The hamster, on the other hand, now has something new for her jealousy.
Now that my pictures are getting to be better known, I guess it’s just a matter of time. I think I’ll sit a while and wait to see if the Museum of Modern Art calls.
