Rose at Imagine the Possibilities is hosting today. She's sharing a birthday poem. It's a great reminder that we as writers have already made gifts for our family and friends by writing poems for them.
Are you interested in a poetry challenge? The September #poetrypals challenge is the Definito, created by poet Heidi Mordhorst,
Yesterday, I shared this poem on social media for the first day of fall.
Today, I am in Hood River with college chums for the weekend and found a fabulous Queen Anne's lace seed-head.
Several of the Poetry Friday group and beyond are using the hashtag #poetryplayground to promote our wee poems on social media. Please feel free to do so. It's so important for us to life one another up.

I love both of your poems, Jone. The first because I always anticipate autumn slipping in and the second just says so much about writing - seeds of ideas scattering and plots unfolding. Thank you for sharing the beautiful pictures, too.

ooh... especially love "story seeds" - and what a wonderful invitation to "life one another up" - wink wink! Thank you, Jone!

Jone, the combination of words and images heighten the impact of your presentation. The celebration of the season and the writing link to seeds are both easy for the reader to feel a sense of connectedness. You have chosen your topics with acumen.

I also appreciate story seeds! Such a great idea in those two little words. I hope they fly and sprout!

Oooh, I love the "plots unfolding" in a seed head. That's just perfect!

Jome, I am glad that I looked back to the Roundup and found your Welcome to Fall poems. Change is in the air and your story seeds are spreading the news. Your photos are lovely and share the news as well. Thanks for the #hashtag.

These are both lovely, but I especially like the seedhead one. We have those all around our paths, and they are fascinating--like tiny birdcages!

Jone, I love both of your haiku! I especially love your personification of Autumn in these lines "Autumn slips in/ welcomes change." I also especially love "plots unfold" from "story seeds." Your photos are the perfect complement, to your poems. Thank you for your inspiration!
