Periodic poetry sharing as the mood strikes me. Free verse is my friend. xoA
You've built a lovely sense of anticipation with this poem. Very nice. I'm especially fond of alliteration so you will not be surprised when I tell you I loved the distant dazzling leaves. :-)
Thanks, Anna. I appreciate your comment. And, I'm sure you won't be surprised to know that I laid in bed this morning thinking of how I might have added something else to this poem. It never fails. xoA
I was just thinking, the three of us are all in Bakersfield. Perhaps we should get together IN PERSON (wow!) and talk poetry, life, creative process, OctPoWriMo or whatever else our creative hearts desire! Let me know what you think!
Sounds like fun! Why doesn't someone throw out a few dates and we can see if our calendars match anywhere. I am going to be away the week of Oct. 21-28. xoA
Oh, Annis. This is absolutely lovely. It reminds me of a meditation, a prayer, a moment of pure gratitude for what is...So glad to be writing with you again via OctPoWriMo!
Thank you, Julie. I'm happy to be involved again this year. My goal is "doing better than I did last year." And, I sure appreciate the prompts, inspiration, and tips you and the rest of the group provide. xoA
Lovely poem, just right for welcoming fall with a 'dazzling' array of images. I loved this one, and it's very nice to be reading each other's work again. Write on!
Thank you, Beth! I appreciate reading your work, too. xoA
