I've been away for a couple of weeks, taking a much needed break from the routines of work, parenthood etc.
I send out a lot of poems and rely on them to tell me if they accept it or reject it. I don't have time to closely monitor each site, so if they neglect to tell me, which does happen on occasion, I assume it's a rejection, or that it was lost.

I only just discovered that a poem of mine had been accepted and published back in April. It's through the Mad Swirl site. You can find the poem here. It's called Shut for Business. Here is the beginning:
Shut for business
Not that it’s the message
This is where I spent half of my holiday, in Indonesia. I was so relaxed, I never wrote a word.
