Poetry Friday, Week 32: Poetry Swap Star
Head over to Margaret at Reflections on the Teche and wish her a happy birthday. She's hosting today. She was greeted with a rainbow for her birthday and has a poem from William Wordsworth.
Summer is for Poetry Swaps
When I returned from my travels, this swap was waiting for me. Linda Mitchell outdid herself with this "Junk Journal" which is more like a piece of art. and for me, a mentor example to create my own junk journal about Scotland.

oh, love the idea of a "junk journal" -- but made even more special that it was inspired through a poetry friendship! Beautiful, and a perfect poem to match it.

Linda's junk journals are works of art! Since I'm a doodler, "starry dream doodles" made me swoon, Jone.

Linda sent me a junk journal for our shared birthday last year. (It was a big number for me.) The care and creativity she puts into making these is amazing. She says it comforts her to work on them. I asked her to meet with me over zoom to give me some pointers. My junk journal is still waiting for me to return to it.

It's nice to see that star journal again! I really do have way more fun making than anyone could get from seeing it. It is fun collaborating with you!
