Happy Poetry Friday! Welcome, everyone! (Wondering what Poetry Friday is? Click here.)
Well, I seem to be on a real tree kick lately! This month, our theme, chosen by Tricia, was to borrow a line from Elizabeth Bishop’s One Art and use it in a new poem. I chose the line:
Lose something every day. Accept the fluster
I was planning to write about my poor memory or the way I look around at least once a day and say, “I can’t find my phone!” Or about the joy of getting rid of stuff. Downsizing a couple of years ago was wonderful! And I did write about that, but in a slightly different way than I expected to.
I wonder what my Poetry Sisters have come up with. Let’s go see! (Addendum: Oh! This is one of my favorite groups of Poetry 7 poems ever. Please make sure to visit and bask in them!)
