Sunrise in Iceland
Have you been penning poems furiously during April? Are you getting tired? Just two more days, after today - you are almost there! So many wonderful poems were written this month. Congratulations to you all.
Tomorrow we are featuring Shay Simmons, known to us as Fireblossom, who is retiring from our sister site, Imaginary Garden With Real Toads at the end of this month. Shay is one of its founding members, so I thought it fitting to acknowledge the contribution she has made to the poetry community, and send her off with thanks and appreciation. She is sharing two of her recent breathtaking poems with us, and also talking a bit about what she loves about poetry. You won't want to miss it.
On Friday, I showcased a wonderful Tofino poet, Janice Lore, including a short video of some of our local folk doing a sort of dance-walk along the shore at Chesterman Beach. If you missed it, do scroll back. It is pretty cool.
On Wednesday, the first day of May (yay!), Susan's prompt is Biodiversity, a topic that offers a broad scope for responding. I'm looking forward to that. Next Friday Rosemary will have something interesting for you, as she always does. And heads-up, next Sunday will be Telling Tales With Magaly, and her theme will be: Phobias. We can also choose to take one of our old poems and turn it into a new story of 313 words or fewer. I am looking forward to the stories that we'll share.
For now, let's dive into the Pantry and see what goodies await us there. Link your poem, leave us a comment, and let's enjoy sharing our love of the written word. Thanks for being here. We so appreciate every one of you!
