I'm so happy to host Poetry Friday this week.
A new year, fresh and into the second month already. How does that happen?
Poetry Friday is a weekly happening for all who love poetry, Write it. Read it. Pass it on.
I found my first Poetry Friday post HERE. It was to announce the CYBILS POETRY winner for 2006. The post ran in February 2007. Thirteen years of Poetry Friday for me. Whether you are new to Poetry Friday or have many posts, welcome, welcome.
There were a total of eleven participants for the 2021 New Year Poetry Postcard Exchange.
This week I curated words from all the poems creating a FOUND poem. I hope you will consider joining the exchange in 2022.
Refusing to Wait for Springtime
Minted moon silverdrops, yesterday’s rain,
reflecting an invitation for merrymaking on the icy pond.
Beneath the surface, unseen creatures
busy themselves with an honest day’s work.
Chickadees flying free, blue herons perching
high in a tree watching the morning joy.
