I love this one for many reasons. One, it is a good Haiku and second it is a great use of metaphor, never thought about the bright light as a basketball and shooting star across the sky. And gym’s vacant sky. Honestly, you have a way with words I want to sweep into my brain and if I did more of my own writing, I bet I would get better faster. Rusty might have a tinge of orange in the brown but it is not a good word for a wordsmith. Your Madness Poetry efforts were fabulous. I was wishing that you were going on. I loved ALL of your poems. And it was me who gave you the heads up for PP. Though I do not want any credit. It was really selfish, because I love what you bring to the poem. I shake in my boots most time even though I know it is for fun, but I want to bring something good with my line. Did I read moving is in your future? You amaze with your schedule and very full life. Still need to connect for Maddie. Just flew off the crazy radar. Big hugs. I figure this is a slightly less public spot for a longer comment. I just bought your Rhyming Picture Book how to for Kindle. 🙂
Thanks, Janet, for all the kinds words AND for the ProgPoem heads-up! I’m so glad you’re participating in PP. I write and share tons of poems, but even I know that twinge of “yikes” when people are actually WAITING to read your poem/line. It’s all for the joy of creating and collaborating, though, so don’t let the pressure get to you. Yes, we may be moving across town to be closer to Randy’s new job (which he loves). But not much on the market to choose from, so we’ll see. So nice of you to think of Maddie–finances are a constant concern for her. And I hope you find more time for your own writing soon! xox
Oh, I love this one. A spherical shooting star.
