than Walt Wojtanik
for the definition of true
dedication to the art of writing poetry.
Thank you, Walt, for all ways being ready with a word
of encouragement, offering
a prompt to start us,
or a nudge
Shared at Poetic Asides
Walt was among my first fans and source of encouragement when I started writing poetry in 2010. He and Marie Good formed “Poetic Bloomings” which was a regular spot for me to get prompts and pointers. Walt’s presence at Poetic Asides (long before I stepped onto the “Street”) has proven to be an example of what it means to let the words flow–both in poetry and in the encouragement of poets. Thank you, Walt!
