Thank you Tara for hosting Poetry Friday at A Teaching Life today.
It’s summer and thanks to Tabatha Yeatts, I get write and send poems out to participants during the summer. I also receive little packages of poems.
Last week or so I received a joy bundle from Joy. Not only did it have this fun poem(and words to live by), but a cool little surfboard for my mobile (how did she know), a letter, one of her grownup poems and an envelope with words to create my own poem. Thank you, Joy.
This week, I was blessed with this treasure tote bag from Donna in Maine. The photo is mine and she wrote a poem to go with it. I am using this tote tomorrow to deliver four photos to the Clackamas County Fair. Thanks, Donna.
This supports our community of writers so much. It’s so fun to create. I have two more to send out before the end of summer.
Two lovely gifts to treasure…lucky you!
The swap is a pleasure all summer long, and you’ve received some treasures this time, Jone. How thoughtful are these two poets, Joy and Donna!
Treasures from Joy and Donna – so distinct and unique. Don’t you just love the connections to who we are and what our passions are? It all shows up in the creativity of poem swappers.
What fun, clever, and inspiring gifts, Jone! And I LOVE your photos which I saw on FB– I hope they (and you) enjoy the fair.
What fun! Good luck with your photos at the fair!
I love the way the Poetry Swaps take a little piece of you, and give it back with a little piece of the creator. So lovely!
Joy and Donna are so imaginative and thoughtful! I like the way Kat described the swap.
Both of these are so creative and fun gifts. Enjoy!
How sweet! What a special way to share poetry with friends.
