Poetry Friday is hosted today by Tabatha at The Opposite of Indifference. Come read and love the words shared!
For Tabatha's winter poetry swap, some of us were paired, and some in a 'round robin' sort of way. This time, I sent to Keri Collins Lewis of KeriRecommends, and she sent a surprise to me. Keri and I don't know each other well, but occasionally read each other's posts. I know she's in love with haiku and that she lives on a farm in Mississippi, and keeps bees. It always sounds like an idyllic place to be, and I enjoyed imagining what it must be like, and also wondering what I could send her. Only a guess, perhaps a little serendipity, and a dash of magic could manufacture such wonderful gifts. There's a bar of honeycomb soap from Keri's own Prairie Blossom Bee Farm, and a beautiful ceramic heart with four little birds placed on, just so. I rather figured Keri loved nature, but she might not have known I do too. And I use only natural soap. What a treat it was to open her box and find these:

Did I mention my favorite color is red? Keri's poem was a wonderful gift Thanks so much, Keri!
