SOLSC17: 31/31, Poetry Friday: What Does National Poetry Month Look Like Here?


Thank you to Two Writing Teachers for holding space for us to sharing our writing every day in March.

2017 NaPoWriMo1

I am super excited to announce a collaboration effort with my talented friend, Christy Peterson.


She’s a nonfiction writer and photographer.  The natural world provides solace for us both.

I don’t have a macro lens for my camera yet and I knew Christy did along with amazing close-ups of creatures.

Last fall, I asked if  she would be willing to share photos and I’d write poems for National Poetry Month. She agreed.

Narrowing the photos has proven to be difficult. I will be sharing them Monday through Friday.  Consider them prompts and feel free to leave a poem in the comments.

Here a preview with Anna’s Hummingbird at the Feeder.
