Most of my haul from the Lucas County Friends of the Library sale. The John Green book is a signed, limited print from a charity event...
I also got a handful of older books that aren't in the pile. Mostly classic poetry and fairy tales.
I‘m a day late and a dollar short for the September edition of #poetrymatters hosted by @LazyDays . The prompt for Day 1 was Favorite, and my selection is Because I could not stop for Death by Emily Dickinson. I love her uniqueness and her unconventional way with words. Her poetry seems timeless-it is as applicable today as it was when she wrote them. #poetry #emilydickinson
Any Dickinson fans out there!? I can't wait to attend this workshop in Amherst! I cannot believe I was accepted! čôÜ
I wanted to let you know that I may be off Litsy for awhile. Today while I was at work I got a call from the coroner's office that no one wants to get. Although it was not entirely unexpected, it was very disturbing. My younger daughter and I had been estranged for a long time, but it doesn't make it any easier. My granddaughter, who I do see often, is taking it hard. I found this poem by Emily Dickinson and think it is appropriate.
In the mood for something different, and Emily Dickinson never disappoints. #LitsyPoetry365
Sharing this again as a reminder for poetry fans or those who are looking for a way to incorporate more poetry in their lives (like me). This is a challenge, but you don't have to sign up for anything. Think of it as more of a personal challenge to read poetry every day and then talk about it. Nothing fancy, just share your thoughts. Or share your own poetry if you would like. Just tag your posts #LitsyPoetry365 and tag me, too.
Reading at least one poem a day is one of my goals for 2017. I got to thinking that perhaps other Littens might be interested in doing this, too, so I've decided to make it a challenge! All you need to do is read one poem of your choice each day in 2017 and post about it on #Litsy, using the hashtag #LitsyPoetry365. Please tag me, @SharonGoforth , on your posts as well. Looking forward to reading and discovering poetry with you!
