Happy Poetry Friday! Welcome, everyone! (Wondering what Poetry Friday is? Click here.)
Well, in this world of chaos right now, poetry is one of the things keeping me calm and grounded. This month’s Poetry Princess challenge theme was “classic,” any form, any topic.
I didn’t really know how to interpret that. But since my personal theme this year is Keep It Simple, I decided to write a haiku (after a list poem failure). And then I realized that the day I was drafting this was the anniversary of my first date with Randy (we’ve been married 32 years now!). In Orlando, Florida, we went ice skating(!), to a very scary movie, and to Steak ‘n’ Shake. Inspired by that date, I wrote this.
I’m looking forward to seeing what classic wonders my Poetry Sisters have written.
