The fabulous Tricia at The Miss Rumphius Effect is hosting the Poetry Friday community today.
Renee La Tulippe has an explanation for Poetry Friday on her blog, No Water River.
Do you ever have days or weeks where you have a lot of questions? It's been that way for me this week. This morning (Thursday morning) I stepped outside and saw the clouds. And as I took the photo, the crow appeared. A gentle reminder to breathe and slow down.
I will miss next week. My college pals and I are heading to Palm Springs to celebrate a Golden Anniversary: 51 years of friendship.
Welcome to Poetry Friday. Mary Lee is hosting at her new space, A(nother)Year of Reading.
Her villanelle with a clunker from Linda Mitchell, surprised her as a retirement poem. I remember that feeling the first year after retirement, not preparing for school as soon as August 1st arrive. Happy new adventures, Mary Lee.
Amy Souza, fabulous creator of the Spark collaborative art series, also offers art postcard swaps. For me, it's usually combined with poetry. Last month, I made copies of a two page spread and divided it into four puzzle pieces for my four recipients. Then I played with washi tape and ink (when I applied the final coat of sealer, the ink bled which is kind of cool.)
morning at hand
the southern moon
the chains lie silent
into her dream he melted
frost wind blows
iced gusts rave
leave me here to fade
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.
