Poetry Friday: Bristlecone Trail

Thank you to Erin at The Water’s Edge for hosting Poetry Friday this week. This is a photo from my husband and my trip to Bryce National Park. We walked the Bristlecone Trail just after sunrise. We had the trail to ourselves.

long shadows
of early morning
distant clouds
ancient trees whispered stories
at the canyon’s edge

Poetry Friday: Separation

Thanks to Amy at The Poem Farm for hosting Poetry Friday.

Michelle H. Barnes has interview my poetry mentor, Naomi Shihab Nye this month. Squee! Her poetry challenge is to write a poem about an unanswerable question. I began with something else and this appeared to me instead.



the children
exist in cages
no parents
singing songs
or comforting their fears
unanswered questions

Poetry Friday: Traveling

Thanks to Carol V. at Beyond LiteracyLink for hosting Poetry Friday this week.

I’ve been traveling the southwest for close to 2 weeks. We’ve seen friends and played in Moab and Bryce.

I brought along my glass orb to play with along the way. Turns out l, people are curious and had fun with it too.
