Jason Minton of PostPoems never a kindness postpones.

I have at times published articles anonymously or under a pen name such as sb11 or O Anna Niemus. All of the articles and poems

Website(s) or Email (When Yahoo was sold all Yahoo groups were eliminated)

Favorite Stuff (poets, poems, quotes, hobbies, etc.)

Richard Wilbur awakened my love of poetry with his poem Two Voices in a Meadow, one stanza of which is of a milkweed:
'What power had I before I learned to yield.
Shatter me, Great Wind. I shall possess the field'.

It is comforting to know that wind cannot shatter a milkweed until it is ripe and wants to be set free.
