Thursday Thirteen #90

For this TT I am nailing two tasks with one project. I haven't updated my Portal Posts since before NaNo started last November. So this week I'm collecting the links and titles for Poems I've posted since the last time I updated Poems by Joy Renee Portal which I created to stand as a table of contents to my poetry on Joystory.

The Idea at the time was to put the links to the Portal Posts in the sidebar to make accessing them easier. I never got around to that either. As I've never gotten around to revamping my sidebar--overdue for over two years now. Sigh. Another thing I never got around to was creating more Portals. I think it was Blogger adding the label option that took some of the pressure off but that isn't really an ideal alternative to posts in which poems, stories, book reviews and essays are listed by titles.

I could do a TT on the blogging tasks I've not gotten around to.

The TT header is a picture of my notebook and favorite clicker pencil standing at the ready along with my button-eyed Blue Mews.


Thirteen Of My Poems Posted In the Last Year

1. Thanking Evan (Written in remembrance of a SIDS baby we once babysat.)
2. Those Were the Days (Written to honor my Daddy on his birthday the first year we remembered it without him.)
3. Those Words "I Love You Honey" (This one was written when I was in Jr. High. Bleh. Juvenile. As most juvenilia is. But as far as I know it is the only thing that survived the loss of all my pre-college poetry efforts when I lost all my manuscripts and school papers in a 1987 move.)
4. Flying From Grace
5. The Reading Lamp
6. Haiku: Heart Agape
7. Joy Splashed
8. Haiku: One Taste
9. Haiku: Frozen Rose
10. Like Riding a Bike (This was an extensive rewrite and expansion of My First Bike)
11. A Mother's Day Musing (A photo essay poem with 20 +/- photos from my early childhood. Put together to honor my Mom on Mother's Day.)
12. A Ravishing (For lovers of story: books, libraries, research, history...)
13. Haiku: Beginnings

There were a total of 17 new links added to the portal bringing it up to 40. There are some more poems floating around Joystory but they are going to be harder to find as they were posted before I began participating in Monday Poetry Train and/or before labels or on non-MOT posts. Some of them were composed in Blogger so I've no other record of their existence. Some of them I may have even forgotten about. But that is a task for another day.

Those Were The Days, touched me since this is the first Fathers Day without my Dad. Thanks for sharing. Happy T13!

Cool list, I've got to do that with my own poems, I'm thinking of creating a pdf file with them all in one place, I just haven't gotten around to it yet.
P.S. I'd love to join the read-a-thon, but I'm going on a writer's retreat that weekend, so not much time for reading. Hopefully it will be a write-a-ton, though.

I love Ravishing, as a historian and a book lover, but I also love how you can see the influence of the book!

Losing your poems from adolescence is hard. Happened to me when I lost everything in a fire two years ago.

My T!!3 is up, too. So Now That You Know What I Do With My Time

Yep, that Poetry Train is a handy thing, isn't it? And keeping organized is hard ... I was talking to a friend about it today. Do you take THIS opportunity to showcase your work or THAT one? Which is better: to have people stumble on you, or to have them seek you out directly? Can you have both without it becoming too much upkeep?

I share your issues, don't I!

I like your poetry. Thanks for sharing.
