Join Diane, MotherOwl, Mimi and me as we make our mark on this topic (har! har!). You can leave a poem in the comments or post on your own blog; if you do the latter, please leave a comment so we can find you. Use the topic or choose another -- the object is to have fun and stretch our imaginations.
I think my poem this week is pretty much self-explanatory.
Sometimes I think I shouldn't be explaining so much anyway. A poem should stand alone, I think to myself.
Then I remember all those English classes in school when we had to read poetry and I had no idea what was going on. Sometimes I would have appreciated a few notes to go with the poem to tell me just what the heck the author meant.
At other times, it was clear without any help.
Empty Or Full -- It's All Good
Two kinds of paper delight me
Two kinds that I wholly adore
Blank sheets all ready for writing
And printed ones from a bookstore
The empty page begs for a story
A poem or thought from my mind
And the pages of books made by others
Are a treat and a treasure sublime
See? Pretty transparent, eh?
On writing ...
On reading ...
What's your favourite paper thing?
Wishing you a week full of good stuff!
