Hello and Happy Poetry Friday! Be sure to visit for Michelle Kogan for Roundup.
Also, please see my "Friend Friday" guest post over at Kirby Larson's blog, about friends and friendship poems from THIS POEM IS A NEST.
My desk has been stacked this week, as editors close up shop before the holidays, so I will keep most post here short.
I've been thinking about the days we celebrate, and how the work of a poet is to be mindful of the small ordinary miracles, too... and also about how challenging the holidays can be for many of us. What emerged is this poem!
Another shout-out to Richard Jones for sharing his art and welcoming these poems... just one more ArtSpeak: RED poem to write, and I will post it here next week when I host a Very Merry Poetry Friday Christmas Roundup. :) Thank you for reading!
Because Every Day is a Red-Letter Day
a new day is here
time to wiggle wander
chew through the blues
