Yes, you are at the right place. I changed looks yesterday.
Seemed about the right time. Lost weight, learned to ride a motorcycle, got my license, finished writing all my poetry exchange partners, sent out my postcard exchanges... time for a new look here. Again - Fa-da!
Let's start with the poem! Yea, Poetry Friday at sweet Margaret Simon's Reflections on the Teche! Lots of poetry going on over there, so take a trip to the Teche!
And yea, Summer Poem Exchange!
My second poetry partner was Joy Acey for the poetry exchange organized by Tabatha Yeatts. If you haven't done this exchange in the summer before, certainly check out the short winter exchange and then next summer's exchange. It is so much fun!
Joy's poem was written on a card designed by Eva Schmutter from Norway. The image certainly isn't the same, but it does remind me of the ice/aurora borealis watercolor I did for SPARK inspired by a piece written based in Iceland.
poem and song matchup challenge Tabatha had going! That would be fun. Pairing artwork from different artists...and maybe inserting a poem connection with them, too. And a dessert...rainbow sherbet for this one... ok. Too complex
Here is the link to her site. The card had the image #392 Aurora Borealis in the Winter collection. I think I'm going to order a print for Gull Haven. She has a few seagulls in her collection.
Do you know
there is ice and snow
all year long
The sun shines a song
all day long
all through the day
on the hills
You'll never be bored
on a boat
There is summer fun
with a midnight sun
And if you wish
you can eat fish
for every meal

Thank you, Joy! I love it!
the rhythm - I feel its waves;
its rhyme - I hear its song;
the glimpse - I see the "specialness"
"in Norway" - I will remember!
I have never been to Norway, but this poem just made me smile as I read it, and made me want to go to Norway someday. You know, if that could be considered a BOLD move, I just may see about doing that!
And of course, it's on the refrigerator. Where else would summer poetry belong?
Stay tuned for the "Refrigerator Post Day" updates. There is coming a "Refrigerator Relay Race"... or "Bloggers on Ice" or some other clever titled day when we all get to post pictures of our refrigerators for the world to see! You can take outside, inside, front, sides, back, top, underneath (yuck!)... I don't care. However, the most interesting would probably be to see what is on the outside, front and sides... what do YOU have on YOUR refrigerator today? Mine is always plastered with artwork and writing, along with a few appointments, a library books receipt, SeaDogs' schedule, etc.
I'm thinking August 31, a Wednesday. Thoughts?
