Happy Poetry Friday–The Roundup is Here!
With this last Poetry Friday post I’m ushering out 2019 and opening my arms and heart wide for 2020 and positive change for our earth’s climate!
Here’s my wakeup call poem:
2020 RAISE YOUR VOICE
We’re saving our planet, come join us!
Saving justice and compassion–
Saving forests, oceans, air,
sky, outer space, critters,
and–Love for all

Happy Hanukkah! Thanks for hosting this festive season. I hope you are enjoying the lights. And, I love the message of your post. Thank you for the fierce beauty you give to our world. Raise your voice!
Thanks Linda, here’s hoping more will want to heed this call.
I love the powerful way you’re entering 2020, with your voice raised and strong. Thank you for all you do to create and support beauty in our world. Thanks also for hosting today. May 2020 bring you much joy!
Thanks Molly, I look forward to a time when we can focus more on beauty and less on the immediate travails of our time.
You are an inspiration! I love the Gary Barlow video! We can all raise our voices and sing, for all the world to live in peace.
Thanks Margaret, music is solace for me in all that surrounds us today!
Happy Hanukkah Michelle! Thanks for hosting this week. I’m not sharing a post this week, but since I didn’t get time to read all the posts last week, I’m trying to read them this week. Both of those videos are lovely, but World in Danger makes my eyes leak.
Yes, “World in Danger” is a powerful, and moving piece that I hope will inspire others. Thanks for stopping by!
Happy Hanukkah wishes to you and yours, Michelle! Thank you for this powerful drawing and poem. We need each other to be strong and vocal during these times, and I am grateful to you. Thank you for hosting…and may 2020 bring you a year of enchanting words and pictures both! xx
Thanks Amy, I appreciate your rousing support for having strong voices–and for
creativity in the coming year!

Hi Michelle. Thank-you for hosting PoetryFriday today – especially as you are enjoying your Hanukkah party, too. My post isn’t really for Poetry Friday. It is all for Amber – but I wanted to share it with friends, who have followed Amber’s story through the years. So I linked in. x
What a lovely tribute post you created for Amber–she sure sounds like she was one special cow, thanks for sharing it Kat!
