Thinking also, as I am submitting some of these poems, that revision is not a back thing. A few of my earlier poem from the month got tweaked a bit. Do you, Dear Readers (and Writers of Poetry) revise your poems? I used to revise A LOT of my high school and early college poetry; and besides grammatical and spelling errors my poems don't change much. I was wondering if i should consider revising my poems, maybe 1 or 2 days after they are written. Some feel right and I don't to change them, but there are always a few that I wonder about. Input?

You will glean
You accept having been
Once halfway across to anger.
Where you were stuck firmly within darker--
The emotions that lay rooted hereandabove,
A shining beacon in the void. Stronger
than deepest dreams often figure.
Still it shines glowing green,
The Middle Queen
