poems gathered

from 2017-present, in the order that they originally appeared in my log.

In February of 2019, after noticing I had only posted 31 poems in over 500 entries, I decided to try posting one at the end of each log entry. Mostly I found these poems through my morning ritual of reading the poem of the day on poets.org, poetryfoundation.org, poems.com, and slowdownshow.org. Sometimes I found them on twitter. And sometimes I found them by looking up key words related to my mood, the date, or something I was paying attention to beside the gorge. Log entries with poems in them are tagged poem.
