The Tuesday Poem this week is After Tomato Picking by Maria Garcia Teutsch, an American poet. It has been selected by this week's editor, Auckland poet Elizabeth Welsh who says: 'I was immediately drawn to this poem of Maria's as it possesses such a strong grounding in the landscape.' And there are blossoms and bookshops, wild pigs and earthquakes in the Tuesday Poem blog roll this week where the 30 Tuesday Poets from NZ, the US and the UK reside. Stimulating stuff.
If you dwell even a moment on one of these poems - slip, even for a second into one of these poet's minds, or better, let them slip into yours - your day will be ever so slightly changed for the better. This is a promise.
