This week's #gratiku focused on autumn images. I like to photograph images when I walk. I've discovered I like to use the images as inspiration for my notebook pages.

Let's Welcome 2021 with a Poetry Postcard
Did you know there are 48 days until 2020 ends? Woohoo! Let's celebrate the New Year with a New Year Postcard? In Japan, it’s called Nengajo, a Japanese custom of ushering in the new year.
How It Works:
Head over to the very talented Robyn at Life on the Deckle Edge for all the Portey Friday goodness in the world.
Tuesday in Scottish Gaelic class, I found some Halloween phrases and worked to create a "found" poem with them.
If you ever want to know what ELL (English Language Learners) go through, I suggest learning a new language. I decided to record my poem. Halting, unsure, hesitant but I did it. You can find it here: https://youtu.be/eoxf6n8-pNo. Enjoy.
Head on over to Linda at TeacherDance who is hosting our Halloween Eve Poetry Friday posts.
Linda has a prose poem and another, "Sill Halloween". Enjoy.
WINNER, WINNER, PUMPIN PIE DINNER: JAMA, you won a copy of THIS POEM IS A NEST. Congrats!
When the world wearies and society fails to satisfy, there is always the garden.

I don't know about you but the last few days have been rough, news-wise. Today I had an edge and cranky pants on until I went to a local garden space. I've been thinking about a basket for the shade garden in front for fall and winter. All these fit the bill. Tomorrow I plant.
