Poetry Potpourri

This month I have been writing alongside Laura Shovan and other writers who have dedicated part of their practice to composing poetry for Laura's 2016 Found Object Poem Project. It has been a delightful challenge to create a poem a day (many of which need refinement) geared to the found object prompt. Since some days were filled with other writing, below Day 26 poem, I am providing two more poems to complete the challenge up to now.

Wonder is an offering for Day 3 2016 of Laura Shovan's Found Object Poem Project.

It feels so comfortable to be caught up with the twenty-nine day poetry writing project. The rewards of being part of an active writing community outweigh the internal pressure to keep up. Now I can relax into the last few days of Laura's poetry challenge.

Now please visit Elizabeth Steinglass' blog for the Poetry Friday Round-up. Elizabeth has two quotes that resonated with me. After providing quote one, Elizabeth goes on to say, "I love the reminder here that producing something anything-is worth the time." The creative process is driven by the pulling of the heart strings of voice that wants to rise from heart to mind to paper. I have found that relaxing in the process helps the voice unwind. 


Gentle Reminder: March 4th is the deadline for submission of digital compositions of combined photographs and poetry for my upcoming gallery, Winter Wanderings
