Spring pics

And congrats to Sally Van Doren who just won the Walt Whitman Award for her book-length collection of poems Sex at Noon Taxes (the title, of course, is a palindrome. *heart*). Finalists for the Award were Jasper Bernes for A Moving Grove, James Allen Hall for Now You're the Enemy, and Maya Pindyck for The Same Nile, the Same Charles. The judge was August Kleinzahler.

Peter,

What a pleasure to meet The Garden Buddha from your poem AND Dean in the same post! I'm jealous of your flowers - it's 19F and snowing here.

Thanks for sharing the pics.

aibohphobia: "a joke term for the fear of palindromes, which is a palindrome itself"

great word!
