I considered these issues briefly, and the outcome is that I will publish the poem I wrote today, on my blog. The reason I made this decision is that I already have a good idea of what else I wish to do with today's poem, and it won't matter whether or not the poem has been previously published.
I've received some interesting comments on the poem from others which leads me to feel my ideas for it's future are good ideas. I'm not saying it's a fantastic poem, but it is certainly a poem others have connected with in good ways.
I've re-edited the poem since I posted it to the Month of Poetry site, and I feel it's improved because of the editing. So here it is for you to read and comment on - good, bad or indifferent, I'd like to know your thoughts.
