Welcome to Poetry Friday. Susan at Chicken Spaghetti has hosting duties today.
In December my One Little Word came to me: CURIOUS.
It was right around when I met Pamela Sue Johnson, a local mixed media artist. I took her online class last Sunday to create an image with my OLW.
As I enter a new decade in sixteen days (or have I already entered it? A friend said when I turned 69, I entered my 7th decade) I have been thinking a lot of the importance of staying CURIOUS. Curious and asking the question: "What if" has me teaching an online class (I fell like I am facilitating it), submitting poems, and creating art.
It's the first Friday of the new year and 7 Carol at Beyond LiteracyLink is hosting us all.
Do you want some poetry challenges to start the year?
Heidi from the Inklings suggested that we using the “The Lost Lagoon” by Mohawk poet, Emily Pauline Johnson (d. 1913) “to build your own poem FOR CHILDREN about a treasured place that you return to again and again (geographical or metaphorical).”
#PoetryPals challenges us to write a poem inspired by something overheard.
