Happy Poetry Friday! Welcome, everyone! (Wondering what Poetry Friday is? Click here.)
So, this month, our Poetry Princess challenge was: a theme of susurrus, or an image of thick woods, whatever form we wish! Maybe some of you wrote along with us? I look forward to seeing your poem on your blog, if so!
I didn’t even know what “susurrus” was…I thought it was a pause (guess I connected it with the poetic term “caesura.” Needless to say, I went with the woods–ha! Here’s what I came up with:
This image felt so calm and peaceful to me. It drew me right in, and this haiku came out.
[By the way, some of you have asked on Twitter and whatnot how I make my graphics, and I use Canva for just about everything! I’ve been recommending them a while now, but if you click here and open a free Canva account, I guess I get some free images. No pressure. They have some free images (or you can upload your own for free), and premium images are $1. You can do lots of cool stuff there. I have made many of my downloadables for my new books on Canva, as well as the graphics I use in my book trailers.]
I’m looking forward to seeing what my Poetry Sisters have written. Here are their links.

If you’d like to write with us for next month, the assignment is an etheree; theme is foresight again (or summer, or both); post for the July 31 Poetry Friday edition! (Maybe use a #poetrypals hashtag? Trying to figure out a hashtag that doesn’t limit us to princesses, 7, or sisters.)
