Good Poetry Friday,
It's so nice to welcome the last Friday of this month. What busy-ness we've been up to in these power packed weeks.
I'm celebrating a continuation of a Thursday morning writing practice that started with Laura Purdie Salas'. 15 Words or Less. Weekly, Laura would post a photo and ask readers to draft a poem of 15 words or less to share in the comment section.
Throughout the day more and more poets would jot poems and commenters could respond with positive critique. Great community and poem building fun was had by all.
Alas, Laura has become so busy with authorship that she lovingly ended 15 Words or Less on her blog.
However, Margaret Simon has brought this favorite wake-up writing of mine back with, This Photo Wants to be a Poem, Thursday mornings on her blog, Reflections on the Teche. Hooray!
I sure was happy to play with Thistle by Brenda Lowry.

Before I pop over to Karen Edminsten's blog who's hosting Poetry Friday this week (thank you, Karen!) I want to put a bug in your ear about David L. Harrison's new book, Dark at Night: Poems of Nocturnal Animals (Word Song 2020). I reviewed it here yesterday, and Word Song is generously offering a book to a randomly selected commenter on my review post. It's a wonderful picture book poem collection. Take a peek and put your name in the hat!
