Happy Poetry Friday!
I’m sharing my first Origin poem. It came out of a poetry workshop I was at a few weeks ago at the Poetry Foundation, here in Chicago. The workshop was on research and how poets incorporate it into their poems. Our prompt was to write an origin poem. I’m not sure if this is finished yet–it may be and perhaps I’ll do another one. Time has been sparse. The process has given me lots of ideas for additional areas I’d like to spend time with and write on.
Liz Steinglass is hosting this weeks Poetry Friday Roundup at her blog Elizabeth Steinglass. Be sure to stop by she’s celebrating Hanukkah with her poem THE MENORAH that’s included in “J. Patrick Lewis’ anthology The Poetry of Us.” Thanks for hosting Liz and spreading your poem’s beautiful light!
