I’ve had a long-term interest in occasional poetry, which sounds like, and may be in practice, something one does only occasionally. The actual intention of occasional poetry is to celebrate a specific occasion, an event, a moment in history, something that can be pinned to a calendar. And for me, all poetry carries an aspect of that desire to mark an experience that will never occur again. And so the edges of my occasional poetry stretch into daily life, and other poems reach toward a sense of occasion. For me, there is much overlap.
