Happy Poetry Friday! Welcome, everyone! (Wondering what Poetry Friday is? Click here.)
This month, our Poetry Princess challenge was to write a hymn using a hymn meter around the theme of fall. This was Tanita’s choice. She’s the beautiful singer in our group! I will let her explain hymns. I’ll just tell you that as fall is my favorite season, I was very excited! My first attempt came out as a very traditional hymn to fall. I like it, though I don’t love it. It’s all pretty expected. I’ll pry share it later in the month.
Then I took Jack on his walk (probably his 5th or 6th of the day, as he needs to go outside constantly. Now, once there are snow and ice on the ground, Jack will not be happy to go outside. Nope, not at all. But give him some good fall weather and, like me, he is happy as a pig in mud.
I don’t know why everyone sees fall as death. Yes, leaves die. I get it. And annual plants. But to me, fall is a time of rebirth. It’s the start of the school year. The beginning of cool days. The reappearance of Orion in the sky. The electric energy from the snapping breezes. I adore fall! So, I decided to write a hymn to fall from Jack’s point of view. Isn’t it convenient that he shares my opinions;>)
Can’t wait to see what my Poetry 7 sisters are sharing! We did a little group sharing before today, but not a whole lot!
