10.10 Poetry Palooza: Meenakshi Dwivedi

 The 1st Year Anniversary celebration of the 10.10 Poetry Anthology: Celebrating 10 in 10 Different Ways comes to an end today.

 But not before today's Poetry Palooza poet Meenakshi Dwivedi captures the Halloween spirit (actually 10 of them!) with her poem, "Ten Ghosts". 

Meenakshi is a boo-tiful soul and I could not have asked for a better poem to celebrate Halloween AND the end of our Poetry Palooza Celebration.

But I must say that I am 100% feeling the last ghost's sentiment. I'm ready to go back to sleep.

Don't worry, I won't ghost you.

I'll be back with more poetry, Smidgey and wee words for wee ones publication news.

Speaking of the latter, watch for sneak peeks and pre-order information on the next wee words for wee ones Poetry Anthology, Two Truths and a FIB due out 1.1.23

I have something exciting planned for our January launch

Or do I?

And Halloween wouldn't be complete without a dog treat

(And a possible Smidgey identity crisis.)
