  1. Thank you Dawn – I am so happy to be featured at The Reverie, it is a wonderful place to submit poetry. I would encourage you to do so at some point when you have time. You can either follow the prompt on a Monday or submit a poem to them to be featured on their website on a Wednesday – I’ve read many good other poets over there too, so I am sure you will be right at home.
