Poetry Friday: New Year’s Poetry Postcards

Thanks to Tabatha at The Opposite of Indifference for hosting this amazing community of poetry lovers.

All this month, postcards have arrived. I found the best place to displace them this year.

This is my unofficial corner of the living room. It’s where I set my cup of tea (or sometimes coffee).

Here are the poems.

tall shirakaba

reaching toward the sky

dawn begins anew

Christie Wyman, 2019

****************************

a poet’s new year

friday friends visit with words

eager to read…hear

Linda Mitchell, 2019

****************************

her old pigskin purse

only enough room for

rainy day dreams

Diane Mayr, 2019

****************************

new year~

sea fog surrenders

to stars

Robyn Hood Black, 2019

******************************

live abundantly

open hands, open hearts–

love shows us the way

Kay McGriff, 2019

******************************

Squat frog fights

winter chill

with stillness

and silence.

Burrows deep.

Dreams of sun

and mayflies.

Trusts springtime.

Waits to thaw.

Irene Latham, 2019

*******************************

four boats on the beach

two already out to sea

hush of waves on the sand

Mary Lee Hahn, 2019

*************************************

as dawn approaches

embrace possibility

glory in wonder

Molly Hogan, 2019

    What a cozy corner to retreat to, and such a rich collection of postcard images and poems, thanks for sharing them Jone!

  2. katswhiskers says:

    Ooooh. The postcards AND the setting. Love those dragonflies… and the lamp that mimics – a bird feeder?

  3. Love seeing all these displayed together! Thank you so much for organizing the January swap, Jone. (PS – a wee correction; my haiku up there should actually end with “sun” rather than “stars” – ;0) ) Happy February!

  4. Tara Smith says:

    You have made a lovely corner for yourself, Jone – made all the more perfect with these lovely poems!

    That is so thoughtful of you, to find a way to keep enjoying the wonder of shared poetry and cards. One day I will get myself together enough to participate in something like this. You’ve inspired me with all this loveliness.

  6. maryleehahn says:

    What fun to have the whole collection on display!

  7. Tabatha says:

    How lovely to enjoy your tea with those beautiful poems!

  8. lindabaie says:

    Beautiful setting, Jone. I’m sorry I couldn’t do it this year. It is a joy to receive poems in my mail. The way the poets wrote is a joy to read.

  9. Linda Mitchell says:

    Oh, I love it! What a nice place to enjoy a cuppa…surrounded by friends.

  10. Jone, this is a magnificent collection! They are all treasures, and so is the haiku you shared with me today! Thank you for responding to my poem!

    What a great collection of poetry postcards, Jone. I am sorry that I missed this year’s event. Please keep me on the list.

  12. jama says:

    Lucky you, what a treasure trove of poetry postcards. Love the display!!

  13. Donna Smith says:

    I usually post the cards on my refrigerator with some small magnets, but having moved, I packed the magnets for a later move to a different home in 2-3 years… so they are on shelves and on the windowsill in the kitchen. I posted my “postcard” today. The move has changed how we do things and what things can get done for a while. Treading water here. But it is all good. Just different! Thanks for hosting this exchange. It is really lots of fun.

    What a wonderful place to display your postcards, Jone! Mine are brightening my kitchen and have turned my fridge into a gallery of sorts. I keep meaning to snap pictures and share them, as they’ve been a lovely addition to these cold and dark winter days. So many beautiful words and images! Thanks for sharing yours and for organizing the exchange.
