addendum... it has been four years, and of the poetry sites then listed here, all but SHEMOM and New Verse News no longer, unfortunately, exist...

(New Verse News, the work horse of peace, also with years worth of my admiration) . . .

- an international poetry site, perhaps the best we have, is: 
Whispers in the Wind 
editor Karen O'Leary and her remarkable quality/daily publishing endeavors, includes collaborative poetry between poets worldwide (wonder why I took so long to discover it) - and, her genuine excitement as 'new' poets submit their poetry:

Dead Snakes  'another day at the office' -

first, this from dear friend Angelee Deodhar

(personal favorite) 

Cattails. . .  from UHTS, The United Haiku and Tanka Society - international society of poets with representatives in almost every country of the world, submissions to - two reasons why we all should so do - first, Cattails is a quality haiku/tanka pub, second, an’ya, principal editor, a caring dynamo (has worked hard at improving a few of my submitted haiku) ok, third reason, co-founder Michael Rehling writes chivalrous, nourishing book reviews, including uplifting reviews of two of mine, ‘tumbleweeds still tumbling’ and an anthology ‘The Poets of Bear Creek’ -  take a moment to send an’ya a cheerful note 

have got to stop here, this post is slipping beyond me - - submissions. . .  my respect for their handling huge volumes of incoming info - they update twice a month (?), I visit there once a month or so and submit poetry to likely victims (30 or more every two months), a very few (but fascinating) acceptances                           

one last online site - -ISteve Ausherman - ‘I am a poet, photographer, potter, painter and high school fine arts instructor. In love with my wife. Loves to travel. Loves to read. Can't sit still. Needs nature to balance the insanity of life. Music lover. Cat lover’  Picture of two aunts, of an occasional handmade card - a certain relaxing decentness therein (a bear creek haiku contributor)

will do this again soon, expanding upon above - but, a. daryl, stop! (for now) - note:  mistakes, misspellings, and all somesuches can be attributed to versifier p l wick and/or peggy dugan french

see you in a moment
