Looks like a nice day coming up although the high might not reach 50. Coffee’s good. Fireplace is lit. I’m imagining the faces of many of you whom I know, bent over your phones and keyboards, cranking up your own days. How will you spend today?
This morning I’ll finish judging a group of essays and work on my “ditty” poem for Michelle Barnes. Have you tried one yet? I have a couple of other projects in the schedule so I’ll do my best to get to at least one.
Don’t forget to write a ditty poem to post on Michelle Barnes’s blog. I haven’t posted mine yet but am working on it in my head.
After a rainy first day we’ve had several sunny, cool days. I start my mornings at the dining room table and set in to work as the dark fades to early light.
My work schedule here is short but I get in six hours or so. We break mid-morning for a visit to the gym but the phone doesn’t ring and there aren’t any meetings.
Yesterday Michelle Barnes posted an interview and I invited you to visit her on her blog: http://michellehbarnes.blogspot.com/2016/02/spotlight-on-david-l-harrison-dmc.html
What I didn’t mention is that Michelle asks her guests to suggest a poetry prompt and I chose Word of the Month Poetry Challenge for my model. Michelle calls her series “Today’s Little Ditty” so I chose DITTY for my prompt word.
SO! Throughout this month poets who accept the challenge can post poems inspired by DITTY and I expect an interesting assortment of interpretations. I hope you are among them. There will also be a drawing for a copy of NOW YOU SEE THEM, NOW YOU DON’T. See Michelle’s post for instructions.
Thanks to all,
