Tiny Treasures #PoetryFriday

Happy Poetry Friday, all! Tara Smith is hosting this week on her blog, Going to Walden. She’s feeling blue about the current state of the world, as are many of us. Some lovely treasures, carefully crafted by poetry pals, provided a bit of respit for me from the chaos that surrounds us.

I had the pleasure of participating in Jone MacCulloch’s New Year Poetry Postcard Exchange again this year. It’s always so much fun to receive these not-so-tiny treasures in the mail from friends old and new. 


This porcine beauty brought New Year’s greetings from writing buddy Linda Mitchell in Virginia. 


Next to arrive was Diane Mayr’s offering of a pair of poems interestingly enough referencing a pigskin purse. A neat connection to the year of the pig. 


Jone herself sent a lovely rainbow image — the perfect symbol for a new year — accompanying her haiku.

Next, these sweet creatures glided through my mailbox from dear Irene Latham, who even noted my OLW “move” in her message. 


My New England neighbor further north, Molly Hogan, sent me one of her stunning photos of a spectacular sunrise. Molly, a gifted poet and photographer, knows I love to wonder, as does she. 


And lastly, Robyn Hood Black‘s greeting made its way through the fog of South Carolina to my home in Massachusetts. (Hey Robyn! I have family in Beaufort. Small world!)

Such tiny treasures, one and all. Thank you everyone!


Thanks for wondering and wandering a bit with me today. I hope you’ll join us on this Poetry Friday by posting a bit of poetry — your’s or someone else’s — and leaving a comment here or there.
