Happy Poetry Friday! Welcome, everyone! (Wondering what Poetry Friday is? Click here.)
So, this month, our Poetry Princess challenge was hindsight again — pick one of your old poems to revise and/or write a new poem in conversation with it… (any form).
I am writing this on Wednesday and feel hopelessly behind. I almost didn’t write anything, but now that we’ve opened it up for everyone to join in, I felt bad not doing it. So, congrats–you’re my new accountability group! If you wrote something, we can’t wait to see it! Share on your blog or in the comments or anywhere you like. And if you share it on social media, use the #poetrypals hashtag!
Here’s the old poem. This one was never shared. It’s from my 2007 Poetry Diary:
March 22, 2007
Let the story stop
While I rest,
When I return

And here’s my poem in response. Oh, how things have changed! I feel like my poetry has become so irritable, and for that, I apologize. I am going to try something more positive next month, I promise!
I’m looking forward to seeing what some of my Poetry Sisters have come up with–right along with you guys!
Click here to see all our previous Poetry Princesses collaborations. Next month, we’ll be writing poems on ponderous, or an image of a hippo, whatever form we wish! We’ll share on September 25, and we hope you’ll join in!
Awesome teacher/author/human Heidi Mordhorst has the Poetry Friday Roundup this week! Her haunting “Back to School” poem is stunning. Don’t miss it.
