How writers cope...

                 Surving Rejection #3064...
                    
    Such easy ecstasy, such self-enlarging
                    Skill.  The words came back,
                    “Not yet—but do send more,
                    Some time.”

                    Castles went up, an empire rose
                    From the ruins—
                    My brilliance is only in abeyance,
                    Will be unveiled
                    Some time—
                    It says so
                    In the letter
                    On my desk,
                    The one lost
                    Among all the other
                    Letters on my desk.

Hi Leslie, I read your poem,"Surviving Rejection#3064" I found it put a humorous light on the subject of 'rejection' that is;when a writer gets a rejection letter. I've had my share of rejection slips. This is is perhaps why my books to date have been published by POD publishers. I looked for a book agent for two years with no positive result. Hey,such is the life of a writer. Best of luck with your writing. Please feel free to visit my sites either here in the den or at www.freewebs.com/kendoo

Don't ya just hate it when that happens? My very best to you Leslie in all of your endeavors. Happy New Year! May there be no rejection slips for any of us. :) Janet
