Happy Poetry Friday! (Wondering what Poetry Friday is? Click here.)
Holy moley. Where has March gone? I know I have one more Poetry Friday post before National Poetry Month starts, but I thought I’d share my plans here a bit early in case anyone else has not planned ahead and would like to join in:>)
I am feeling overwhelmed by all the political news and focus lately. I know it’s important, but I feel out of balance. So.
For National Poetry Month, I’m going to try to write a very short poem each day focusing on celebrating some small wonder, something I notice during the day. I’ll take a picture of that thing and add my poem to it and then share it the next morning. I’m going to share it using the hashtag #wonderbreak, so if anyone wants to do this, too, just use that hashtag. (Yours can be poems with or without images!) My idea is finding small, everyday things and appreciating the beauty and ingenuity in them. Spring is not pretty here in Minnesota. It is brown and yellow and dead and muddy. So I’ll have to mostly get away from my crutch of appreciating nature and look for new little wonders. Not a bad challenge to myself. Please join me if you’d like to!
Otherwise, you’ll be able to see my daily (fingers crossed) poems here or through any of my social media thingies:
And for actual poetry, don’t miss the Poetry Friday Roundup with Catherine at Reading to the Core.
