A Happy New Year to all. It’s nice to start the year with a greeting to all of you. For that matter, it’s nice to start the year with a poem!
while knitting sweaters —
phone calls not made,
from wind-shaken branches —
from shovel to coffin —
Process: I found this one difficult and almost stopped a couple of times. The words are divergent [I think that’s what I want] enough in meaning that it took a while to find the commonality to bring them together. As with most wordles, my process involves putting words together on paper, that work in some way, whether it be sound, or meaning. Then I start with the arrows, and jotting phrases, and lines. If I do that enough, I arrive at something 🙂

I shall see you all, Tuesday for the first Tuesday Tryouts of the year. I have missed you in the past two weeks. Don’t worry; for this week, I shall be conscious of brains returning from festivities. Next week, though… I shall also see you Friday for the first roundup of prompts for the year, on Friday’s Freeforall. Have you noticed? Donna Vorreyer has her first entry for the newly coined The Poetry Mixtape. I didn’t want to wait until Friday. Visit!
Happy writing, this year, everyone.
