#Migrants: Portraits & Friendships

La Casa de Colores, Hosted by Juan Felipe Herrera, U.S. Poet Laureate, 2015-

@cilantroman's @LibraryCongress La Familia Theme, Oct15-Nov14, 2015

Every inch of this land is woven with migrant trails. These are pathways from family to family, country to country, and most of all heart to heart. For this month, find a trail and travel through it to a new dream. What do you see in your travels? And how do you make friends along the way? Describe for me in the language of poetry—migrate into new words, use new landscapes of images.

admittedly not much in the way of a blog but  hopefully a return to more regular poetry and other not ed/adjunct/academic labor advocacy blogging. I keep filing all the poetry items, news and notices that come in, star promising posts in reader, etc ~ sometimes even post to blogger drafts…but then forget
