Happy Poetry Friday! (Wondering what Poetry Friday is? Click here.) Well, it’s the first Friday of the month, so of course I’m sharing a poem written in concert with my Poetry Sisters. This month, we wrote ekphrastic poems inspired by several pictures Sarah took in Israel.
I was running very late and hadn’t even started my poem by Monday of this week. Ack! Then I got an email from today’s Poetry Friday Roundup host, the awesome educator and poet Heidi Mordhorst. HER group is posting definitos this week (see her post for an explanation of that form), and since I had played along with her definito challenge years ago, she asked if I’d want to write one, and could she share my old one (of course)!
So, I blended the two together and wrote an ekphrastic definito. Here’s the poem, and you can scroll down to see the drafts below, if you’re interested.
As always, I love seeing the variety of poems we came up with. I hope you’ll go check theirs out!
