I've been busy this week, writing lots and lots and doing the necessary laundry and dishwashing. No vacuuming, so I think that must be today...cat and dog are of no help...
Anyway, after putting "The Fall of the Leaves of Fall" poems together in a photo quality book, I've decided to put "Winter Ways" in a trade book format. This will mean a much better price point than the FLF book. "Winter Ways" will have new poems, geared for the youngish and young at heart. I'm sorry that most people don't go for rhyming books, but that seems to be what my brain does a lot of, so a lot of these are using that format. I have written and rewritten and slept on it, and rewritten, hopefully to get the rhythm and reason for the rhymes to work out together. There is nothing worse than making a rhyme for a rhyme's sake... except maybe reading it later and noting that the rhythm is off!
I have copied a page out of "Winter Ways" and am posting it here for Poetry Friday. I know. I'm late. But I've been busy.
Hope you like it! It's time for snow!
Now, go to more Poetry Friday at Random Noodling
