Thanks to Molly at Nix the Comfort Zone for hosting all the poetry goodness this week.
This summer an envelope arrived from Tricia of The Miss Rumphius Effect. She participated the annual Poetry Summer Swap. Inside was the following:
This is from the Etsy shop WingedWorld. The owner lives in Oregon. Small world.
Tricia’s poem is a cento. A cento is a poem, composed of quotations from other authors
Written by Tricia Stohr-Hunt
A list of book titles Tricia used.
Tricia knows my heart and love of books and years in the library. This was a terrific poem to receive.
Thank you for delighting my mailbox with this poetry swap treasure.
Thanks to Laura for hosting Poetry Friday Roundup at Writing the World for Kids.
Thanks to Tabatha Yeatts for leading us in the Summer Poetry Swap (as well as the Winter Swap). I forget how many years we have been doing this exchange but in an upside down world right now, it the balm for the poetry soul.
This week, I received my swap for Kathryn Apel. She send these three electronic images and poems:
This poem…from an information sheet and collaged with waters colors
introduces us to the RAINBOW BEE EATER. I may have to try this poetry form. Kind of a reverse black out.
Then a watercolor and cherita…love that the bee-eater snaps-snack
And finally, a question and play on words…swoon.
Kat said that while not as small as hummingbirds, the rainbow bee-eaters remind her of hummingbirds. I agree so much.
And her rainbow bee eater would have like a couple of my bee-themed poems that I sent as swaps this summer.
Kat has had a very busy summer as she’s been busy as a judge for the Dorothea Mackellar Poetry Awards.
