it to spring
break...thank you, God.
As we begin April and all the festivities, I'm headed out on the road for a much-needed rest and to spend time with my beloved family.
This past week I spent more time playing with syllables and words to write etherees that don't look like they simply fit the form.
There's an etheree on the padlet too! https://padlet.com/mitchellhubeimom/word-bwfgg0bqmjhf62fd/wish/2539077824
Thank you, Mary Lee, for hosting this week. I look forward to the Progressive Poem kick-off and all the words to come.
Oh, Linda! Happy spring break. What a sweet etheree that you wrote about the rain. "tambourining a steady rhythm" and "umbrellas bloom" are really appealing to my senses. That last line is priceless. In this terrible storm, the best place to be is watching from inside one's home. Have a wonderful time traveling and visiting family this week!ReplyDelete
Linda,it is a quiet morning and I am indulging in PF reading time. Your etheree not only makes wonderful sounds but fits the look and the rhyming intensifies the poem. I also liked your padlet etheree. While I was there, I enjoyed your poem, Origin.Have fun this weekend.ReplyDelete
I love the musicality of your poem -- booming rock-and-roll with a tambourining rhythm. We've got rain again today, but it's a quiet, drippy, chocolate-chip-cookie-scented kind of day. :-) I'm wishing rest and rejuvenation for you this week!ReplyDelete
I love this, Linda! I love storms, and I love that you're working on making your etheree look and sound like it naturally falls into those counted-syllable lines. NOT like you took a poem and just broke the lines where needed for the syllable count. Hooray! And--tambourining--yes! Have a lovely escape.ReplyDelete
What fun! I really like the sounds in the pairing of the lines "splatter splash" and "people duck and dash." Happy Poetry Month Linda!ReplyDelete
Linda, I know you have been through the wringer, "wipers madly swinging side to side," and that you can make a sunlight collage and write not one but two etherees and show up for meetings--you just astound me. May you fall back into your break and,"tambourining a steady rhythm," find some grounding for the challenges ahead, dear friend.ReplyDelete
I'm so glad you've reached a time for rest and recuperation. I was so sad not to catch up this past week. I love your etheree and its companion photo(s). You are a master at combining the two. I also appreciate that you can write about the mad chaos of those wipers and still capture and celebrate the wonder of a storm.ReplyDelete
Hooray for you. Our break is ending & we have snow/rain coming next week, again! Love that "lightning out to rock-and-roll", Linda. Safe and happy travels!ReplyDelete
Oh, I love "umbrellas bloom." Have a wonderful trip and a much-deserved break! Whew. On the home stretch now.ReplyDelete
Sending you major relaxing and restorative vibes while you're on break - you deserve it! Your etheree is an entertaining peek at the stormy show you experienced. I can feel the humidity - well done!ReplyDelete
Love the musicality in the sounds of your etheree, Linda. Enjoy your break!ReplyDelete
All the rhythms in this poem make it a dance-do-si-do through the rain!ReplyDelete
I agree with Heidi. Your strength is an inspiration, Linda! I agree with all the comments about your musical etheree. Have a restful, relaxing break!ReplyDelete
