It’s not Goose Lake but . . .

Hi everyone,

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. 20160204_150037_resized
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.

Thanks to Michelle Barnes for interview and poetry challenge

Hi everyone,

Yesterday Michelle Barnes posted an interview and I invited you to visit her on her blog:

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,
