Poetry Friday is here today: Kat at Kathryn Apel. She's heading us up for a muster, which means cattle round-up.
And she has a new book out, THE BIRD IN THE HERD.
It looks like a very engaging and fun book.
I have a couple of poems that were inspired by the prompts for Laura Shovan's February poetry challenge. Sometimes the poems didn't arrive on the day of the prompt. They tumbled out later. The first one is from February 8, with Buffy Silverman's snow on a tree skin idea. I thought of the icicles after the ice storm.
the size. popsicles reaching
the tree's clavicle.

The second poem is from the prompt on February 24th about seeing bodies in the clouds, water, trees, you get the drill. I have written about this tree on our property before. And I've discovered her mouth, It took a hit in the recent snice (snow and ice) storm.
