Ellensburg, Washington postcard poet Joanne Thomas has released a book of poems; inventive “definitions” entitled bluebird (bloo-burd). TWO postcard poems chime in as Bluebird blurbers, Bethany Reid and Matt Trease:

Registration for the 15th Poetry Postcard Fest is open until July 18 and first lists go out July 4. We hope you’ll consider signing up and telling a friend.
