Happy Poetry Friday! Welcome, everyone! (Wondering what Poetry Friday is? Click here.)
And Happy Thanksgiving to all my U.S. friends! This post almost didn’t happen, so this will be quick! Our Poetry Princess challenge was hindsight, examined by revising or responding to an earlier poem. I didn’t really follow that direction (guilty look here). I just took hindsight as my prompt. Although 2020 has totally sucked in so many ways, there have also been gifts. So I decided to write an epistolary poem to the almost-over year…and I guess it’s a good sign that I had trouble narrowing down the things I’m grateful for from this year. I’m grateful for my wonderful online community, now more than ever! So many times when I’ve felt a bit discouraged, checking in with my online friends and with my Poetry Friday community has reminded me of all the good in my life!
I’d like to make it more sensory in the next draft, but here’s what I’ve got for now!
I’m looking forward to seeing what my Poetry Sisters have come up with–right along with you guys!
