Happy Poetry Friday
Don't miss festivities at http://buffysilverman.com/blog/. Thanks for hosting this busy week, Buffy!
My whirlwind poetry trip began Thanksgiving weekend when friends, reminded me of their invitation to me to go home with them to NYC. We've been talking about it for ages. And, we finally did it, traveling by train to New York and back to DC in a quick twenty-four hours or so.
I hadn't been to NYC forever. It was a treat to stay in Greenwich Village.
I found beautiful words everywhere.
At Pennsylvania Station, we found an envelope from Minnesota stuffed with dollar-bill origami and what looked like the beginnings of a poem or a prayer on a seat.
The maker was long gone. Maybe it was left to be found?
On the subway...
In the library between the lions, Patience, and Fortitude.
And in the book I packed in my bag in case I had a minute to spare for reading--I didn't. That's OK. Winter break starts today!
The best poetry of all, of course, was time with my friends. We talked and laughed and looked and enjoyed all of it.
