Poetry Friday: #poemtober and #inktober

Thanks to Catherine at Reading to the Core for hosting all the poetry goodness in the world on this Friday.

I have been participating for the first time in the #inktober2019. Last year I dabbled in the #poemtober (this year I am working to be very consistent).
Yesterday I was traveling so I missed doing the prompt although it rolled around in my mind.

Here are the prompts for yesterday and today.
Day 10: pattern

sea’s perfect pattern
the conch shell
ocean in my ear

The Spokane, WA area was hidden with a rare snowstorm this week.

  1. Very nice, and I like your ink drawings they work well together with the poems Jone! Fun putting them on the back of a library card too.

  2. These are coming out very nicely. I keep missing them on whatever platform you’re posting on…tag me please! Astonishing that you had snow already!

    I’ve been enjoying your Inktober/Poemtober contributions each day. I’m looking forward to the rest of the month!

  4. Love your inktober pairings, Jone.

    Oh, I’m impressed that you’re both drawing and writing! I love your sea-inspired take on “pattern”–that one has me totally stumped!

    Very nice, Jone! I’ll be adding “drawing” to my mental list of your artistic talents. The pairing of your haiku with sketches is lovely.

  7. These are lovely, Jone. I especially love “sea’s perfect pattern.” Sorry about the snow. I am definitely not ready for that! Thanks for sharing!

    We had snow, too, and broke cold records, but today was warmer & then back in the sixties. I love your sketches and poems, Jone, happy you included that conch, part of the wonderful ocean.

  9. Linda Mitchell says:

    I love your sketches! Are they on a tablet of some sort? I admire you working on consistency. I’m not hitting the mark so much this month…and my instagram is not showing my work the way I want it to. Sigh. Dinner by candle light sounds absolutely lovely.
