Online community poetry has been a charm for me since my retirement. I had planned when i retire to write , write and write; my hobby. Today i am still writing within in the exclusivity of my home and my private space. Which i hold dear to and enjoy. Outreached happened in unplanned spontaneous ways. Like acquiring copies of fellow online community writers through e-books and snail mail purchases. Then there were book swapping. Which i really really like. My first swap was with a Romanian haiku poet in 2009. I'm still book swapping in 2018.

style of the handshake
sometimes words need manifest
