In the post today....

After a long and convoluted saga of chaos and confusion involving the Royal Mail, I finally received this stunning photo that i had won in a competition at The Green Fingered Photographer. So thanks Mark! Mark's photography is wonderful and he holds regular competitions to win prints of his work, so why not visit his blog?

And belated thanks to Melissa from Poet with a Day Job for her postcard of her poem Safeway. Last year Melissa was offering postcards of her poems to the first person to comment on the posts. I won this one and it arrived in the post last month.

In the post today i also received a copy of the latest issue of Wisteria, the journal for tanka and haiku which has one of my haiku in it!

...and one of my haiku is haiku of the day on Beer Haiku Daily - see it here.

Hi Crafty Green Poet,
I am glad you received the picture at last, I hope you enjoy it and I will try and avoid posting anything around Christmas time.

Cheers Mark

Dear Crafty Green Poet, my poems have appeared in some of the magazines where I read yours appeared, in particular Orbis, the one I love most and the only one I have been regularly renewing my subscription for more than six years. Carole Baldock is such a character, such a great editorialist....
And Poisonwood Bible and Fugitive Pieces are two of my favourite novels too.
Great Greenness in your blog.
Warnmly, Tommaso Gervasutti from Venice-Italy
