  3. It’s been a while since I have joined the party, although I visit often and continue to feel deep gratitude to all of you! To the community of writers and bloggers that nourish my life as a teacher, writer, reader, person…Many thanks and Happy Poetry Friday! Today I thought I’d share my end-of-the-year writing that is sort of a poem…maybe I will try some revision. http://lookingforthewritewords29.blogspot.com/2012/07/inspired-by-our-president-and-22.html

  4. Thanks for hosting, Jone. Enjoy your holiday! It looks like I’m somewhat on the same rootsy page as Tara just above as I posted a poem about a bluegrass musician and the wonder of vinyl. “I find my old Doc Watson record” is here: http://wp.me/pC77F-iR

    My selection is “The Swamps of Sleethe: poems from beyond the solar system” written by Jack Prelutsky with illustrations by Jimmy Pickering.
