Happy Poetry Friday! (Wondering what Poetry Friday is? Click here.)
This week, I’m sharing another Poetryaction. There’s a lovely new book by Nancy Bo Flood out called Walking Grandma Home. Click here to read my post about it from Wednesday. And here’s my poem. Although I wrote it about my own mom, horrific world news of the earthquake in Turkey and devastating local news here in Minnesota of a child killed by the person who should have been protecting him the most…those have been weighing on my mind. Although none of those people had the comfort of being walked home by their loved ones on this planet, I have to picture them being carried home on waves of love and peace somehow. It’s the only thing that makes such loss bearable.
And for lots of fabulous poetry to help you escape the world–or think more on it, don’t miss the Poetry Friday Roundup with Carol Varsalona, whose heartfelt poems and posts always offer an array of digital beauty!
