On my third reading of this collection, my own favorites were by Diana Conces, Sharon Tracey, Linda Malnack, Paul Marshall, and Gabriel Cleveland, but every reader will find a few other poems here that are powerful expressions and, perhaps, encouragements to the reader's own spontaneity and openness. Without seeing the postcard pictures that these poems accompanied, of course, we miss something of their inspirations, but that is true of nearly every poem we read anywhere. Any poet considering joining the project next year might want to first see this sample of the range of possibilities. And poetry readers who do not find summer postcards from interesting friends in their mailboxes can see what they are missing. Disclaimer: I have written poems for this project for the last two years, and have a poem in this anthology.
