Happy Poetry Friday! (Wondering what Poetry Friday is? Click here.)
Friends, if you submit your poems for grown-ups to online or print journals, would you share your favorite markets or your favorite place to find poetry markets in the Comments? My adult daughter is interested in starting to submit her poetry. Thank you!
It’s funny how National Poetry Month makes me feel more connected to a poetry project but less connected to other poets. April is always a super busy month, and I kind of lose touch with my Poetry Friday community. I’m kinda glad things are getting back to normal!
All during April, I posted a poem draft each day made of words plucked from a pile of magnetic tiles and a topic chosen from a board game card. In the next week or two, I’ll share some thoughts–once I’ve had time to reflect a little. For now, here’s a roundup of all the poems, plus a couple of extra I haven’t shared before. First, the new poems.
In iris, the words I had available led me to writing about the eye rather than a flower.
And here’s a rainbow one. This one is based on The Wizard of Oz, because the topic rainbow brought to mind, “Somewhere Over the Rainbow,” which led to the movie, the tornado, the Wicked Witch, the travelers all feeling lacking, and the ambiguous ending. I personally am sure Dorothy was NOT dreaming!
And now here’s a roundup of all the magnetic poems I shared:
