Happy Poetry Friday! (Wondering what Poetry Friday is? Click here.)
Today, I’m sharing a poem I wrote years ago, because on Michelle Heidenrich Barnes’ blog, my Lerner editor, Carol Hinz, challenged us to write poems about things not typically considered beautiful.
As someone who thinks about life and death a lot, I have learned to embrace some things that people find sad. Not that I love them, but I appreciate their role in making life precious. I have to, or I’d walk around sad all the time!
And for lots of wonderful poetry, don’t miss the Poetry Friday Roundup with Jane at Raincity Librarian, who has a new picture book I’m anxious to read!
