Today, Poetry Friday is hosted Downunder at Kat at Kathryn Apel. And she's shares her interesting pets.
This week I received this gorgeous painting and poem from Mary Iphigene.
Do you know her work? She's an incredible artist and poet.
And from the sounds of it life has been particularly challenging in the Philippines.
I love how she used mourning/morning in her poem.
I also love 'crows feet/gathering'.
Thank you for this treasure, Mary.
This is my response to Mary's poem. I used the phrase "Waking Up to Sunlight" for a sort of Golden Shovel (added an extra line).
Waking Up to Sunlight
Dream clouds fade with songbirds waking
me. The dog jumps up
tail wagging, nose nudging me to
rise and greet the morning sunlight.
This is joy.

Molly at Nix the Comfort Zone has the Poetry Friday this week. She's thinking about summer using the mento text from Pat Schneider’s The Moon, Ten Times. It sparked a a poem for me.
Welcome to Poetry Friday. Today, Margaret at Reflections on the Teche, is sharing a fabulous project as a result of COVID and writing through the Ethical ELA. Go check it our along with all the other fabulous poetry in our world.
BTW, #poetryeverywhere is from a Naomi Shihab Nye quote, "See poetry everywhere."
I almost didn't post this week. Sometimes I take July off from blogging. This little haiku has bee rumbling in my head since the photo last Sunday. I am in love with this sky and sunset. So many textures.
