Happy Poetry Friday!
Well my #NaPoWriMo project has been eclipsed by many things… the major eclipse has been work–I’ve been preparing to teach two online classes that are starting the week of April 20th. I’ve made tremendous progress, and am learning and growing–it’s all new, unexplored territory for me, but I’m readying to take the plunge. So my fine feathered, climate endangered friends will have to wait a bit. I have done some work on it, in both art and words–poems, perhaps some will emerge soon…
As we are upon a holiday weekend I’m sharing some poems and art to celebrate both Passover and Easter.
6 FEET OF HOLIDAY LOVE
may leave you
in a holidaze…
But, look for those
break through, and
wrap around you,
no matter how far
that six feet
beat as one
and will carry

first greens of spring
emerge in march and
april blooms billow…

And the icing on the cake this week, I received this lovely NPM postcard from Irene Latham–thanks for shining poetry’s light my way Irene! xo
The gorgeous art is by Nancy Milford, an Artist/Writer from Baldwin County Alabama.
Make sure you stop by Amy Ludwig VanDerwater’s blog The Poem Farm for this week’s Poetry Friday Roundup. Amy has been writing and reading her poetry this month from within her friend “Betsy the Writing Camper–” and it’s been a lovely treat!
