9/16/11:

With the last two poems I posted today, I have exhausted all my old poems from the years I did not post here. There very well might be a lull in posting from me until I get motivated to write original works again (or at least find time to contemplate writing them, for a start).

Also, is anyone else's story stats not recording anything for the last week? Mine have been blank.

All of the works now posted here in the last two months are also at allpoetry.com, under the penname Stonecreek, just as here.
