Welcome to 2016 and our 10th year as Kansas City Metropolitan Verse

The blog is, once again, active and I look forward to happenings with our poets.
Thank you to all that have given their blood, sweat and tears to hold us together, as a group.

Submissions for Anthology#10

We have submissions deadline for end of February or first of March (at the latest).
As one who is guilty of late submissions every year; my goal is to submit before I am prodded.
Our 10th edition anthology will be amazing! Brenda and Ralph are the dynamic duo of compilation and we can't thank them enough.

Winter Words February:

February should keep us snowed in a bit (hopefully)and our goal is to have numerous submissions for our 10th edition.

Each month I will challenge the group to a different form of poetry.
Keep them to share for when we get together, or submit them to me at sheila.madoniamaberry@gmail.com and I will post them here.

February Challenge: Concrete poetry --is a type of poetry that uses some sort of visual presentation to enhance the effect of the poem on the reader. The visual layout of the poem need not necessarily form a picture, although many concrete poems do.

So, let's get creative and make something visually stunning!

Please let me know what you would like to see on our blog and what you would love the community to know.
Also, share any ideas that you might have to keep us active and most importantly, writing.

Let's summon our muses and put quill and ink to papyrus pen to paper.

Enjoy the quiet of our snowy days, let your muses guide you and see you all in Spring!

  1. Along the Sound
    Among the rushes
    Fences built
    to detain the sand
    not stop it - as
    it bends in the wind
    and folds on the edges
    around the stone markers
    The names and dates
    quiet homage
    To the baby, age one
    The granddad from 1894
    The young mother buried in 1968
    Touched by the waves
    The sun
    The visitor
