Today’s poem comes from a prompt at Michelle Heidenrich Barnes’ Today’s Little Ditty. This is from the first week of April, and I’m just finally getting around to it…better late than never? I’m also finally reading Michelle’s The Best of Today’s Little Ditty 2017–2018 anthology, and it’s lovely. And her posts have made me want to read the Patrice Vecchione book she’s deep diving into, also! A feast of poetry and prompts this month. I hope I’m not the only one doing a terrible job of keeping up with everyone!
This poem is about empathy and what our hands can do. My poem took an unexpected turn, but I like it as an early draft.
Like most everybody else, I’m experiencing lots of upheavals lately! I have no huge National Poetry Month plans–just hoping to share an imagepoem here each day (or as often as I can). I’m participating in Laura Shovan’s awesome #WaterPoemProject the best I can, so most of my poems will come from either that or from the PAD (Poem A Day) Challenge at Writers Digest. Grateful for the distraction of poetry and friends!
