Leave it to poets to come up with such a fabulous way to display poetry by women! The brain-child of Danielle Jones-Pruett, the dress included seventy one poems from Boston, Connecticut, Maine, Texas and Alabama. (My contribution was on the theme: "Black Dress." An early version of this poem found here. Edited version found in my latest book, THE COLOR OF LOST ROOMS, found here.) The dress was displayed at the Massachusetts Poetry Festival in Salem, MA, last month.

Next year perhaps even more poems and a floor-length dress?? YES!

Big thanks to Danielle and all the other poets who contributed both in-kind and in-words. You are an inspiration!

  1. What a creative idea. Now maybe a clutch purse to go with it? :-)
