When the stress mounts, it's time to relax with my digital notebook and create. So that is what I did this week and joined Kathryn Apel, Aussie children's book author and poet at her poetry challenge, Poetry Pep Up. Because I mixed up the times for the first Zoom meeting, I missed that live event. Unfortunately, I will miss the second one because of the time difference but there is always the archived video of the Zoom meet that Trudie Leigo sends from Australia.
So now here is my mini-gallery of this week's attempts to build my writing muscle and spark creativity. It was pure fun as Kat hoped it would be.
fragrant messages bloom
in the midst of grass.
Sunbeams filter through foliage,
mellow and golden-
In This Moment
wanders,finds no placeas upsets mount,protests, unrest but life moves on with hope
Day 4 Challenge Blog post - Write a Poem Inspired by a Photo Directions from Kat Apel
Just for fun, I moved out of my comfort zone and created a Quarantine Life video while outside in my garden. You can see that here.
Thanks, Kat for the enjoyable week writing alongside you. I did miss challenge 2 but plan to pen a poem for Day 5. For now, I am off to sleep but first I need to travel to the Poetry Friday Roundup at Margaret Simon's blog. Here you will find a touching letter poem Margaret penned to her students.
Quick Note: If you offered a digital inspiration for my #NatureNurtures2020 Gallery collection please place it in the padlet that I created that you can find here.
