Happy Poetry Friday! (Wondering what Poetry Friday is? Click here.)
Well, friends, I’ve totally dropped the ball. We’ve been dealing with a lot of things at my home this month, both wonderful and not wonderful. And I not only missed my live writing call with my Poetry Sisters, I didn’t even write our poem this month. This was supposed to be in the style of Pablo Neruda. I’m barely staying afloat with writing and life things. Make sure to check out what they’ve done, though. I’ll add links as I get them, though their posts probably won’t go live until Friday.
Okay, now on to Poetry Friday and Poetry Month. Curious about what I’m doing? Want to play along? Read more here.

We’re in the final stretch of Poetry Month. Whew! It’s honestly been a struggle to keep up this year. I’m exhausted. But I’m ready for the last few days. Let’s do this!
There were just too many vicious words in yesterday’s tiles NOT to do dragon as my topic! And for the second or third time of this month, The Hobbit and Lord of the Rings were what filled my mind. I was picturing Smaug destroying Dale. I know there are lots of delightful contemporary dragon picture books–but, honestly, this one is just Smaug, and that’s it.
What words will we be digging through today?
And here’s the card that we might pull our topic from:
So some possible topics are:
Will you join in? Would love to see what you come up with!
And thoughtful Ruth at There’s No Such Thing as a God-Forsaken Town has this week’ Poetry Friday Roundup. It’ll be lovely to see how everyone’s Poetry Month is wrapping up. <3 I’ll be making the rounds this weekend.
