Just a few notes: It looks like I’ve settled all my WP issues with a return to WP.com. I’ve also returned to my MAC roots with the Safari browser. That seems to have calmed everything down as well. Safari is a slower browser, but as my Mac ages, it might be better. We shall see.
As security and tracking become bigger issues, all the browsers are scrambling to devise ways to make us safer. Unfortunately, for authors and bloggers, those trackers help us connect to Amazon and other sites where we sell our books.
Check your browser settings and find what works best for you. For example, no matter what I did on the Firefox browser, I had to sign into every single blog post to comment. That’s crazy! Bye-bye Firefox!
I think the Pro plan was a trial of sorts where WP tried to offer those of us on WP.com more functionality. Remember, they were going to give us two options: pro or free… Obviously, this didn’t work. If you still have issues receiving posts or can’t leave me comments, let me know. I think that was all part of the non-functionality of the Pro plan.

Welcome to our weekly poetry stars’ celebration. This week’s challenge was to write our choice of syllabic poem, using a form from the cheat sheet or a syllabic form from the Poetscollective.org. Reena Saxena provided a piece of her artwork as our prompt inspiration.
Many thanks to everyone who joined in below:
I enjoyed this week’s poetry so much. With all my WP woes, it was a great escape! This week I wanted to feature Britta Benson’s poem “Seen through Pane.” I love when synchronicity happens, and this had to be one of those times! Bravo to Britta for her Brevette & her Etheree poems:
Mug t r a p p e d butterfly *** "Seen through pane" Dot, spot, wing print of life. Mug on window sill. Handpainted, still. Butterflies multiply in odd, mysterious ways! Late flowers wait on other sides, anticipate colour, feast, touch. Why won’t that perfect specimen flutter by? © Britta Benson
