Closing this beautiful day with some tea and poetry. Enjoy your important place in this wonderful world, and dream well, all you readers. 😴📚✌️
This is from the end of a poem called "Sweater Weather: A Love Song to Language" by Sharon Bryan. It made me smile this morning.
I always start my morning with reading, a cup of Pu'erh, and my bearded companion. This morning beginning #24in48 is no different. To all those who are marching today, I'm with you in spirit and solidarity! Today is a day for strength and hope.
You don't have to be a fan of Garrison Keillor to appreciate his taste in poetry. This collection has introduced me to so many talented poets I would have likely never encountered. These aren't "the classics" and may not even be the "best poems." But they are good--good for your soul.
Finally jumping on the #augustofpages train so I can show off my #poetrybooks collection. I used to go to monthly poetry workshops as a middle schooler, and it's been a fixture in my life since then. Who are your favorite poets, Litsy?
