Well it’s research time for me again. You see I just got a lead on a poetry anthology about The Grand Canyon. I saw that majestic crevice in the ’70s when I was flying to Las Vegas to visit a friend, but I wondered: Could I write poetry about it?
I awoke yesterday with the beginning lines for a mule- ride-into-the canyon poem, and finished it this morning. While still in bed (I seem to do my best work there — go figure) I started another one about river rafting on The Colorado. That one sounded pretty good, but then I wondered: Is it accurate? I then did the only logical thing I could — I forced myself out from under those comfy covers and plodded into my makeshift office and trusty computer and researched The Grand Canyon… Now I’ve got enough information to write at least 3 more poems; maybe more. If you wish to get more information about this anthology email: firstname.lastname@example.org and Happy writing!
