Happy Poetry Friday
My poem today is from another of the poem prompts from author and poet Laura Shovan for her 10th Annual February Poetry Project that I’m participating in. The prompt was offered by author and poet, Patricia Valdata, and as part of the prompt we were given the song Who Know Where the Time Goes.
“WHO KNOWS WHERE THE TIME GOES…”
If I could reach my hand
in between time’s layers
and reach into my life
to that time of
yet so vulnerable
at any moment…
I’d wear those same
wire, curly, swirly bangle earrings,
gathered floral blouse and blue jeans,
with notebook and
always within reach,
and follow my hearts
the time goes,
but who knows where…

Who Knows Where the Time Goes– title borrowed from: Sandy Denny’s song.
Here’s an interesting article on Sandy Denny.
I received one more beautiful New Years Postcard from Linda Mitchell. I love the layered, textural, surface it has, it goes with the layered stars in the night sky… I also like the ending line in the Sara Teasdale poem, “There will be stars forever while we sleep.” Many thanks Linda as I’m a nightly star gazer I’m enjoying it immensely!
