Happy Poetry Friday! Welcome, everyone! (Wondering what Poetry Friday is? Click here.)
So, this month, our Poetry Princess challenge was, apparently, my choice. Last week, Sara emailed the group to say, “Are we still doing Laura’s challenge? September — Laura — A poem comparing something with a snake — some snake pairing you think has never been done before! 8 lines or less.” Seriously? What on earth made me suggest that 9 or 10 months ago? I haven’t the slightest idea. But, hey, a challenge is a challenge.
Last weekend, my husband and I drove to La Crosse, WI (about 2–1/2 hours away), to help our daughter and future son-in-law clean out their apartment as they have moved to Madison, WI (4–1/2 hours away :>( ). I wrote this poem and created the graphic in the car on the way there. I was thinking about the birthday cake I picked up for our daughter that morning, with its lovely piped lettering.
I’m looking forward to seeing what my Poetry Sisters have come up with–right along with you guys!
