ATTENTION IPAD USERS!
Apple doesn't like listing me as "Will Shakespeare (poetry blogger)"
to differentiate me from the other guy, although everybody else does.
They took my first book but now won't take new ones. (Go figure.)
Since Smashwords distributes my books to Apple anyway,
just go to my Smashwords author page and download EPUBs from there.
Smashwords provides samples of my books also.

Sun Tzu for Poets

Sometimes writing poems is a battle.

Poetry is the greatest work. It is
The breath of life and death for the people,
The source of hope for a struggling nation.
It must not be ignored. Is the poet
Skilled? He will woo the hearts of his readers.

This is how the poet shares his passion:
What he speaks is scribed in calligraphy.
What he weeps is painted in watercolors.
What he loves is sculpted in Burmese jade.
Many thoughtful edits quicken its pulse.
By these alone, I can foretell triumph.
