Happy Poetry Friday! Welcome, everyone! (Wondering what Poetry Friday is? Click here.)
So, this month, our Poetry Princess challenge was a skinny poem with the theme or spring or looking ahead. I love skinnys…sometimes. They’re one of those forms that for me either work right away…or don’t work at all. I wrote one earlier this month I was really happy with. This one, despite the #waterpoemproject hashtag, was NOT written as part of that project, but I guess I copied over the credit line. Oops. Anyway, I’m not totally happy with it, but it did capture how important outside is for me right now. I look out my window all day as I work, and I get out for a brisk walk, too. Focusing on nature during this time lets me kind of ignore humanity and all its problems–and isn’t that a blessing! I also just realized that I left out the word “is” from the first line when I rearranged the last line. [Addended: And I don’t even have the right number of lines! What on earth happened here? This is not a skinny.] Oi. But you know what? I’m going to give myself a bit of grace and just say, At least I came up with something:>)
Here’s what my poetry sisters came up with!

Christie Wyman at Wondering and Wandering is gathering us all for the Poetry Friday Roundup this week. I’ve been enjoying visiting more posts than usual this month. Lovely to see what everyone comes up with/shares. Stay well, friends!
