Here in The Pine Tree State, we’re celebrating Maine’s Bicentennial—that’s right, our beautiful state will be 200 years old on March 15, 2020.
Here on my blog, I’ll be celebrating Maine through poetry all year long… Let me know if you’d like to join in. Blogger friend Jim at USFMAN kicks off the New Year with three great haiku poems and photos from one of his Maine adventures at Acadia National Park! Check out Jim’s blog for more of his awesome adventures! ~ Bette A. Stevens https://www.4writersandreaders.com
