Happy Poetry Friday! Welcome, everyone! (Wondering what Poetry Friday is? Click here.)
Hey, this part isn’t poetry, but it’s the LAST DAY for these two things, so I’m sharing here.
First, there’s a Goodreads Giveaway. Win one of 20 copies–last day to enter is today.
Second, it’s the last day to get CLOVER KITTY GOES TO KITTYGARTEN at its Amazon First Reads Pick price of only $6.99 for the hardcover! Lovely gift for a child, parent, or teacher feeling anxious about the school year. Tomorrow, August 1, is the publication date, and it will be back to full price then.
If you end up reading, I’d so appreciate an honest review on Amazon. And you can find lots of printables and extras on my book page.
Now, back to poetry! The end of July already? Holy buckets. This month, our Poetry Princess assignment was an etheree with a them of foresight, or summer or both. Did you write one? If so, share on social media with the #poetrypals hashtag!
I thought, “Foresight–who has foresight? It’s one of the things the pandemic has taken away. I’ll just write about summer.” Interestingly, to me, anyway, that lack of foresight became the theme anyway:>)
I’m looking forward to seeing what my Poetry Sisters have come up with. There’s a lot going on right now–um, see poem above–so several of us couldn’t make it this month. And we’re not beating ourselves up about it. :>)

The fabulous Catherine at Reading to the Core has the Poetry Friday Roundup this week. Check it out! And if you’re interested in writing along with us during August, here’s your prompt: The theme is hindsight again — pick one of your old poems to revise and/or write a new poem in conversation with it… (any form). We’ll be posting August poems on August 28, and we’d love to have you join us!
