It's Poetry Friday and Michelle at Michelle Kogan is hosting us all. I always love when Michell hosts, her art is incredible and today she shares a very interesting article.
I've been working on some little art projects. I found some quotes about snow and winter for golden shovels.
the moon could be breaking apart
A starry, brittle night. The
snow-people gaze at the moon.
The snow-people wonder how they could
dance a salsa on snowfields and be
festive without music breaking
the ice fields apart

I think Linda Pastan is a poet whose work I want to read more.

Snow people dancing to Salsa music...my childhood dream come true! Beautiful art, too.

Oh, that collage is fabulous! And a lovely golden shovel. I have a silly dancing snowman poem, not as mysterious as yours or Linda's, at https://www.laurasalas.com/writing-for-children/poem-titles/

Jone, your collage is such a dreamy one with a poem to dazzle a winter night. Congratulations on the upcoming reading. Unfortunately, I will not be available to listen to the online reading. Best of luck and thank you for the Poem Exchange again this year.

I like Pastan's poems whenever I see one, Jone. This is a delight & an apt 'wondering' by those Snowpeople. Could a salsa heat things up too much?

I love Linda Pastan! And I love your snowman poem with her line as your striking line!

Great post Jone! I love your collage, the snow-people and poems, all so lively, I can feel the movement, thanks!

This collage is awesome! And I can't wait to do the postcards! So fun!

Snowmen and salsa! Now there is a poetic pairing! And the artwork accompanying the poem is gorgeous! Thank you, Jone!

Howdy, Jone - I hope the reading went wonderfully! I'm sorry to have missed it because of a schedule conflict. Love your playful post today - the little collage has so much movement in it! And what could be more fun than salsa-ing snow-people?!

PS - I hate to miss the New Year's swap this year, but we're in the midst of a local mini-move getting our house ready to list, before the bigger move in a couple-few months. I'm barely treading water at the moment! xo ;0)

I love the snow people dancing. They must be some resilient snow people to be dancing the salsa without melting away. Great image!

Your golden shovel is lovely, Jone, and those sweet little snowmen!
