Hello Poetry Lovers,
I'm on the road again this weekend. Thank goodness for audiobooks. I'll be driving far but to family and that's the best. I might not respond to posts until my return. In the meantime, say thanks to our Veterans and enjoy beautiful autumn.
Thank you Buffy Silverman for hosting our round-up this week. This poem is for you--Mwah!
The Poetry Sisters are calling for recipe poems this month. I'm practicing with a Recipe for Stargazing...on the padlet https://padlet.com/mitchellhubeimom/4bzbfu2cg5k7awk5/wish/2379434754
It's my turn to challenge inklings with a writing prompt.
Even though #folktaleweek was started by illustrators, creatives of any kind can join in. I use the words as prompts for poems.
It's funny. My poem at first doesn't strike me as very folktale-y. But, it could be...we've been living through a scary tale for a while in many parts of the world. Once Upon a Time, Victory was inspired by Barbara Crooker's poem, And Now October, shared by Karen Eastland on Poetry Friday last week. It harkens back to a gentler time before so much societal stress.
Once Upon a Time...
