Poetry Friday: From Violet Nesdoly


Thanks to Margaret at Reflections on the Teche for hosting this week.  I am trying to get all the blog posts read and commented on each week.

Poetry PSA 1:  I am trying to get all the blog posts read and commented on each week.  I feel bad that it doesn’t always happen.  I hope you understand that it’s my time management and I always have the best intentions to comment.

Poetry PSA 2:  Get ready to apply.  The CYBILS will open applications to serve on committees around August 21-September 11.  Poetry is always looking for a lively conversation about terrific poetry books.  If you are interested, be on the look out.  You are not able to serve on Poetry if you have a poem in an eligible anthology or if you have a poetry book eligible for nomination.

My first poetry swap was from Violet Nesdoly. We met briefly at Poetry Camp last fall. (Can’t believe it’s almost a year).

It was very special because June was a difficult month.  This book from Violet lifted my spirits.  I contacted her to say thanks and she shared that several poems were based on what she’d learned from my blog. I had chills. Sharing poetry during the summer is the best. The end of the book has blank pages and I have been putting my summer poetry swap poems there.



open and eager
like children
encouragement is warm sun
to new springtime buds

pink ladies
a family line
following in grandma’s steps
lovely legacy

My response:

a writer
notices others
word flowers
poetic observations
in the fields

Poetry Friday: Poetry Swap # 3


All good things are happening with Donna at Mainely Write, our host for Poetry Friday this week.

One of my favorite things about summer is the Annual Poetry Swap.  This past Monday, I received a piece of art in the mail with a poem From Brenda at Friendly Fairy Tales.  We were swap buddies as she received mine the very same day.


My response:

coast to coast
the sea draws us together
through poems
