Tick-Tock-Tick

 Hello Poets,

Jama's Alphabet Soup is one of my favorite places on the internet for creative thinking, arts, and letters. Don't miss her fabulous blog with all of today's poetry goodness. She's hosting our round-up today.

I am away from my desk and meeting with the American Association of School Librarians. And, I'll be popping in to read and comment on everyone's blogs when I can catch up.

Hamish has a thought on the word, Harvest. See it over on his padlet: https://padlet.com/mitchellhubeimom/Ox 


Thanks for reading!

  3. Wonderful, Linda! Your poem made me laugh & remember that my dad bought himself a cuckoo clock late in his life. (That 'Which? I ask.') He loved it but it kind of drove the rest of us crazy! I saw that you were at the conference & hope you're having a great time!

  4. Nice job, Linda. I love your conversation poem about being on time. Perfect use of tick. And what a beautiful painting you and Hamish captured in your Harvest poem. Lovely. Enjoy the librarian association meeting.

  5. Linda, I am glad that you are with your librarian friends soaking in more knowledge to share with us and your students. Tick Tock is a delightful poem that reminds me of a clock my Nonnie had and a Victorian clock that I own. It has a mind of its own. For years it did not chime and then one day after moving in I heard the beautiful chimes for a short time and now it is quiet again. Hamish has a wonderful old piece of art work and a poem that I would like to add to my fall gallery, Bedecked in Autumn. If you agree, can you please send me a copy of the image poem? Love these lines: and wheat
    distant hills tinged
    October sweet.

  6. Clocks are a great topic for poetry. So many different kinds. Makes me wish I had put the grandfather clock from the train station in my poem about my great grandfather today. Ah, another poem. I'm sure you are having a good time "hobnobbing with your fellow wizards."

  7. Oh clocks! Thank you for your poem. And for Hamish reminding us there are many ways to look at a harvest. Enjoy AASL! xo

  8. Love your timely poem, Linda (made me smile)! I do love clocks, all sizes and shapes. Also enjoyed Hamish's Harvest poem and the beautiful painting he selected. :)

  9. I'm such a clock-watcher--this is fun! And the gothic-y illo makes me think of The House with a Clock in Its Walls. Hope you're having fun at AASL!

  10. I can see you are having a blast at your conference and yet you still have tick-tock-time to post a poem and hang with Hamish...extraordinary. Love this little gem.

  13. I know you are filling your well at the conference. ENJOY, and don't think a bit about the clock (except to get to sessions and coffee dates on time)! Hamish did a beautiful job bringing in the harvest. You will harvest ideas and laughter.
