I am actually taking a tag…because this one is cool.

Welcome to the Introspection Tag, people.  Vinay, otherwise known a “Leo” over at I Rhyme Without Reason, has passed on a tag I just cannot resist, because it is so…introspective.  I even have to pass this tag on, it is that interesting.  I really enjoy Leo’s wit and sense of humor, not to mention his haiku.  He also runs the meme over at Haiku Heights, and I do not want to annoy him by turning him down, which could result in impossible multisyllabic haiku weekly prompts…so…THANK YOU VINAY!  So, I am now going to go through a period of intense self-examination and introspection to answer the following 7 questions, and then pass the tag on to 5 other people.

  1. My Most Beautiful Post: Hmmm.  I’m picking this one, because it is my favorite.  The Birth of the Moon.
  2. My Most Popular Post: According to the Most Viewed Post list on WordPress, my most popular post is baby teeth , which surprises me.  It’s an okay poem, but a bit of a tear-jerker.
  3. My Most Controversial Post: Hmmm.  Don’t think I have raised a lot of controversy with my posts, although they can be political.
  4. My Most Helpful Post: I do not think my poetry is, as a rule, helpful to anyone but me.  However, I did get the most spam posts assuring me in tortured English that one post helped them immeasurably, and that was Parachute Wedding Dresses.  Go figure.
  5. A Post Whose Success Surprised Me: Hmmmm.  This has to go to my first ever pantoum.  I thought it lacked something, but everyone else seemed to like it.  The poem is Pantoum (Before).
  6. A Post I Feel Did Not Get The Attention It Deserved: Well, this post got some attention, but I feel that it got a little lost in the shuffle.  When you smile my name.
  7. A Poem I Am Proud Of: Oh, this is a tough one.  I love my poems and am proud of all of them.  They are the children I don’t have to feed or send off to school.  If I have to pick one, let it be My Dead.

OK, now I get to tag 5 people.  You can ignore me if you want to…but I just might “like” all of your posts without reading them for a week if you do.  Nah.  I would never be that mean….I have to read your posts, because I LOVE you guys!

  • Soraya: Her poetry is so vivid, I can’t wait to see what she has to say about the particulars or her work. .
  • Mimi from Waiting for the Karma Truck.  Love the title of her blog, and her posts are…transcendent.
  • Rhonda:  Really, this one is just to tick her off.  Love you sister…
  • Boomiebol, because she is way too sweet to cuss me out and drive from IL to NY to kick my butt for tagging her.
  • Jules:  Because I really, really want that hot potato award.  Rhonda has one, and I am jealous.

So, you five can ignore me totally, send me a hot potato award (Jules), or cuss me out & continue the game–up to you!

    You are too wonderful Susan :)! It’s so funny that I just turned on the iPad since morning and your post is the first I read lol. Well you know I have to do it. Will require a lot of thinking but will do it…will also check out the poems you chose later tonight.

    Would you believe I haven’t had a chance to rest…hoy! Had to drive to the city to see a friend’s parents visiting from Nigeria.

    A woman’s job is never done lol. Thanks always Susan

    • Boomie, honey–I think it is a good thing it is a 3-day weekend, because you are going to need that extra day. Thank you–I am looking forward to seeing your answers.
