A Catalog: The Collected Poems of Kath

This is an attempt to catalog the poems I have written, and when, in backwards chronological order. Anyone interested in reading any of these,or discussing this project, please let me know. Welcome poet friends! I am planning to regularly feature a poem regularly from the list, with a short introduction concerning the composition.
By way of introduction: this is A WORK IN PROGRESS... (thus huge gaps to be filled in) a catalog of my poetry never before attempted, and in reverse chronological order. It might be considered a "Table of Contents" for my collected works should someone ever wish to collect them. It gives of feeling for the progression of my work, and also where and when it has been published. At this point this includes all poetic works except haiku, which I will list separately. I will also add some commentary of my own on what I think has been happening during each period, what I have been excited about as far as form and content, the focus and the development. Highlighted poems are currently featured on the "Pages" below.

2/7/07--The Collected Works--I have already found this to be an important and demanding project, but surely worthwhile! I will try to work on filling it in gradually. It is an exciting overview--and very tedious to do the documentation! It is only just begun...
