Gratitude breaks the spell of Writers Block
Istiqlál (Independence), 17 ‘Alá’ (Loftiness), 173 BE - Friday, March 17, 2017 CE
I don't know how funny a Friday it is yet. I submitted a limerick to "Comedy Newsletter (March 15, 2017)" for the challenge. "Here is my limerick for the challenge." "A Good Limerick" There is another limerick contest that ends today. I don't know if I'll write one for it or just submit a copy of the one I've written. I think that might be the best thing to do at this time. I am working on another limerick, but I have only the firs two line written and I can't seem to think of anything else.

I put the first poem in the first entry of "Bicentenary Poems and Prose" . This entry is about the months of the Baha'i or Badi calendar. I suppose I should explain that in a drop note at the bottom of the poem when I finish the last section. I have only one section of the first entry completed. It's a senryu about splendor. I don't know if each of the poem in this entry will senryu or not because I have thought that far ahead.
It's my turn to contribute to the "Cinquain Chain" . My five line poem must begin with "warm breeze". I'm not sure how many things I have to finish this weekend. I know I have to respond to a review request, write my cinquain and finish my edition of the fantasy newsletter. I also need to research a senyru chain to see if I need to do anything special for the next stanza of my entry in "Bicentenary Poems and Prose" . Since I can't find any rules for a senryu chain I can go ahead and make the rest of the poems in the first entry senryus.
