Poetry Friday & poems from Jone & Joy

How fitting that she’s hosting, because today I’m sharing the lovely photo and poem she sent me this summer in the swap.

Curglaff is a fitting word this week, what with all the buckets of ice water going around. I love the little boot she drew, too! Thanks, Jone, for this welcome respite from the Mississippi heat!

Joy Acey sent me this lovely, original postcard, and a wish for my poems to take wing. Such a kind thought! Joy is a prolific poet, and this summer she took a class and created her own book of poems. You’re an inspiration, Joy!

Thank you, Jone and Joy, for sending me art and poetry this summer!
