It's Poetry Friday, and Michelle Heidenrich Barnes has the roundup at Today's Little Ditty!
First, I'm thrilled to be a Round Two Judge for the 2015 Cybils' Awards with Jone MacCulloch, Rosemary Marotta, Diane Mayr, Heidi Mordhorst, and Laura Shovan. It's the tenth year of these awards, and that is something to celebrate, too. If you'd like to see lists of all the previous winners, go here!
You may or not know that I spent two weeks on Captiva Island in August. Yes, it was hot, but we were right by the ocean, and it was a marvelous time. I wrote several poems, took many pictures, and bring back more in my mind than I can show. I love our Rocky Mountains, but wish an ocean were just a little closer.
I look and look,
then choose to keep
a cerulean shell,
packaged on the island
of first the sky
and then the sea.
