My name is Gay Reiser Cannon. These are pieces about Texas–from Amarillo to Port Aransas. There are a group of poems that will be tagged as neighborhood poems. They refer to the Oak Lawn area of Dallas and reflect a time at the turn of the millenium. This should make a nice chapbook of photos, artwork and poems which will get added to as I compose them. Hope you enjoy them. Thank you for visiting.
Well I wrote this ten years ago. The blog transformed after a while. I became a moderator for One-Stop Poetry which then morphed into d’Verse Poetry. I am still a frequent visitor there although I am no longer tending bar with my lovely friends. The poems here constitute a major portion of my work. I have another blog where I put things as well. I don’t have a reason for choosing one over the other. I switch between them at will. Together they constitute seven plus years of regular posts of my poetry, illustrated as I wanted them to be – sometimes with my own photos or artwork, other times with the work of others. Not all are noted because some were not attributed. I would not submit them anywhere else as illustrations of my work.
I hope you enjoy reading them and if you re-post you must attribute my work to me as I would for you. These are under my copyright. Thank you.
