Happy Poetry Friday! Welcome, everyone! (Wondering what Poetry Friday is? Click here.)
We’re changing things up for 2020 and posting on the last Friday of the month. Or, you know, we kinda failed to get our act together for the First Friday, and…well, never mind. We’re here now, and that’s what’s important. Thank you, Liz Garton Scanlon, for being the glue that holds our group together!
This month, we’re doing haiku to look forward to 2020 or backward at 2019. (By the way, on Jan. 2, I shared this brief poem about the beginning of 2020, too.) I was mall-walking before WW on Tuesday, and I was so annoyed to discover I didn’t have my earbuds. What? No audiobook to listen to?! But instead, I wrote this haiku :>)
And a few more:
Swept up in time’s rush
Surging through the years’ twin bluffs
Riding the rapids
Thoughtfully made goals
wait on a pristine paper–
Untouched since New Year’s
Each day is a new land
A year of travel awaits
Perception is truth

I’m looking forward to seeing what my Poetry Sisters have come up with–right along with you guys!
