Dear Whirlers,

The absence of weekly whirls has been noted by several of you. I backed off after receiving hateful threats from a few trump supporters who write here periodically. I will not share their names, and I will not ban them from posting here.

My apologies for my silence, but my world was shaken. trump encourages evil. Even poets succumb.

The Whirl will continue this week. May the light of your work remove blinders from the ignorant and mean-spirited few.

Early words will no longer be offered. I’ll post late on Saturdays, or early on Sundays. Keep your words whirling.
