The Tuesday poets have celebrated the first birthday of the Tuesday Poem blog with an unfolding communal poem for a birthday.

The poets explian:

We’re celebrating with a communal poem that will skip backwards and forwards across the world and between time zones over the coming week (NZ, Australia, UK, US), with the finished poem posted next Tuesday.
Our tag team of Tuesday Poets who live in the land of the sidebar (eyes right!) will add their lines to the unfolding poem at the rate of four or five entries a day until Sunday, and then the full poem will be up for a week.

Among them are:
Tuesday Afternoon in the Domain by Renee Liang.
Winning the Day by Catherine Bateson.
Us by James K Baxter.
Fresh Bread by Catherine Fitchett.
