Happy Poetry Friday! (Wondering what Poetry Friday is? Click here.)
Well, I thought my life was in sufficient order that I could be a contributing member of Poetry Friday again, but I seem to be lacking! At the end of June, my Poetry Sisters posted tangled poems. That is, found poems that we doodled on. You can find Tanita’s lovely examples and links to all of the poems here. I goofed my schedule and totally missed the boat.
My husband Randy and I were driving home from Madison, WI, to the Twin Cities just after the Fourth of July. I didn’t have my Zentangle pouch of supplies with me (yes, I’ve Zentangled off and on for years at a very basic level), but I had some magazines to catch up on. So I decided to do my Zentangle poem on the ride home. I’ve gotta say it wasn’t too enjoyable. I hated trying to doodle OVER printed text. I like a lot of white space when I doodle, and this activity didn’t allow for it. But…I did it. And I finally remembered to add the blue highlighter just now and post it this week! This is a spread out of the April 2021 National Geographic–an article about the habitat destruction of the Florida panther. As a Florida native, this one caught my eye.
And for less whining and some wonderful poetry, don’t miss the Poetry Friday Roundup with Kat Apel!
