Happy Poetry Friday! (Wondering what Poetry Friday is? Click here.)
First off–a big thanks for the Poetry Friday folks who attended the Moving Words library event I participated in last weekend. It was WONDERFUL to see familiar names in the attendees list and see your comments in the chat box :>) If anyone’s interested in watching the video replay, it’s at https://youtu.be/nXgql5PNWs4 While we aren’t specifically discussing poetry, I talk about the genesis of the rhyming bits of Clover Kitty Goes to Kittygarten, and Joyce Sidman talks about her beautiful forthcoming poetry collection, Hello, Earth! We each talk for about 10 minutes. I start around 17:00, and Joyce starts at around 30:00.
Now, back to my regular Poetry Friday post :>) I thought I’d share another of my poems from A World Full of Poems, the forthcoming anthology edited by Sylvia Vardell. I realized since my post a couple of weeks ago that I actually have three poems in the anthology–whee! Here’s one that appeared in the original Poetry Friday Anthology! Side by side with William Mackepeace Thackeray–not too shabby for my cuddly kitties ;>)
This anthology comes out from DK on October 6, and it’s available for pre-order now. Don’t miss it! Oh, and if anyone who has a poem in the anthology but doesn’t have a blog would like to share their poem here on my blog, just contact me. I’d love to feature someone else, but I don’t like to use other people’s poems from anthologies without their express permission.
For the rest of your weekly dose of poetry, visit the Poetry Friday Roundup with art lover and poet and fabulous bringer together of people Tabatha Yeatts!
