“Tuesday Afternoon at Magpie’s Grill”

Thrilled to have a new poem up at Nine Muses Poetry. This poem was written about my occasional time spent writing poetry at Magpie’s and named, appropriately, Tuesday Afternoon at Magpie’s Grill.


A big thank you to editor Annest Gwilym.

I hope you enjoy the trip into a writer’s thinking in this odd poem!

  1. I loved this, Luanne! Congratulations!

  2. I sometimes see and hear myself in your poems – this is one of those.

  3. So much to savour and identify with in your poem, Luanne, like this –
    “What have I done with my life? When
    I should have written a poem, I didn’t.
    When I did, I didn’t get it quite right.”
    and then the wonderful final 5 lines. You make self-doubt a beautiful thing – but contrary to your words, I believe you also captured the ease.

  4. I love the poem, Luanne. Congratulations!

  5. Enjoyed it very much! Congratulations!

  6. Loved this one, too, Luanne! And congrats on another published work!!

  7. Congratulations, Luanne. I really like this one–I can imagine myself in this place and with these thoughts swirling through my head.

  8. Like so many others, I identify with this poem. These lines especially: “Would I notice if not for my companion,
    my need to recognize and remember?” Writing is my way of remembering not just facts but feelings, moods. And the last few lines just go to show that you do “get it right.” 🙂❤️

  9. Big congrats, Luanne, glad to hear you’ve received some recognition!

  10. I love this poem so much, Luanne! Certainly, it is one of your best. Shivers/gooseflesh at the end! Congratulations.
