There is much poetry goodness in the world and do we ever need it now. Head over to Sylvia at Poetry for Children. She has the inside scoop of the 2021 titles being born.
What a week. I think what lifted my spirits was the arrival of New Year postcards.
Linda Mitchell's New Year Poem is based on the Year of the Ox and it happens to be her OLW. That it is a bookmark is a bonus. I love her mixed media art.
Janice Scully's tree made me swoon. I love trees. I am ready for some merrymaking and some spring.

The winter proved harder since I sent the card. But spring will come.

Thank you for organizing the New Year's Poetry Postcards. I didn't sign up this year, but I have loved seeing them on posts for Poetry Friday.

Jone, thank you for showing the creative poetry post cards you received. I love the concept of sharing them spreading poetry, art, and love. What a great photo and haiku by you! Love the surprise "year begins" ending.

Jone, I love the idea of creating a calendar. I think I'm going to do that for my family for next year. Would you share the platform you use to create? And, I so appreciate the postcard exchange. The beautiful poems I receive and the opportunity to share creativity with our community is very special to me. Thank you, thank YOU!

Like everyone, Jone, especially now, I love your postcard idea. It's a light in my world. Thank you!

Jone, I am grateful for your Poetry Postcard venture each year. Last week, I was so scheduled with our trip to our new home and Baby Aurora's first birthday that I had no time to join Poetry Friday (a real disappointment to me). I also receive Linda and Janice's postcards, along with yours. I will post them at PF this week with others received. Many thanks.
