#NPM18 - 20/30 - Really A Review

             Two-thirds of Poetry Month is over and it's Poetry Friday. Come gather with Tabatha Yeatts-Lonske at The Opposite of Indifference. Thanks, Tabatha and congratulations on the publishing of Imperfect! Amazing, but true, I'm writing about a mistake this Poetry Friday!

      I made a big mistake this week, hoping to make amends today. Last Monday, I shared this book cover photo of H Is for Haiku: A Treasury of Haiku from A to Z by Sydell Rosenberg and Sawsan Chalabi implying that I was sharing and reviewing it. Well, I had the review ready but did not add it to my post. I thought I had and I even shared with Amy Losak, who has shepherded this book of her mother's till publication, that it was there! Yikes! So in addition to the wonderful reviews by Robyn Hood Black here, Matt Forrest Esenwine here, and Michelle Heidenrich Barnes here, I'm sharing my own excitement about this wonderful book here today! REALLY!
