Poetry Friday is Here Today!

Welcome one. Welcome all! I am thrilled to host Poetry Friday today. Please leave the link to your website and the title or kind of poem in my comments, and I will post the links throughout the day today!

Sherry said...

Thanks Kelly.

My post for Poetry Friday is at this address:

I'm having a John Donne week.

Kim Kasch said...

Oh I was just going to close my eyes and imagine a bunch of words running around in my head - kind of my own version of a poetry slam!


Gregory K. said...

I'm up with an original today:

A Perfect GameThanks for hosting!

Mary Lee said...

Thanks for hosting today, Kelly! Have a fun day!

Have a great weekend!

Diane Mayr said...

I'm celebrating baseball today with haiku.

laurasalas said...

Kelly--Gripping cinquain. I've cared for people having seizures, and it's such a helpless/terrifying feeling to be able to do nothing but watch.

I'm in with a "Dew," by Kay Ryan, and how we shared a metaphor.

P.S. I was too busy to do the Picture Book NaMo, too. Hoping to do an impromptu one when things calm down!

jama said...

Today I'm sharing Robert Pinsky's "ABC," which I rendered in alphabet pasta:

Thanks for hosting, Kelly! :)

Big Plain V said...

Okay, I think I'm finally catching on. On Fridays, we post poetry on our blogs, then 'the host' links to them. That about right?

I just might participate with something original next week. Though I might try to find a way to do it anonymously -- wouldn't want anybody to find out I have a secret soft spot.

Linda said...

Hi Kelly, I'm sharing Gary Soto's new collection of love poems at

Mur said...

The Write Sisters want to thank Kelly for hosting today. Seeing a redbreasted grosbeak for the first time inspired Mur to look for a bird-related poem. Maya Angelou's Caged Bird fit the (ahem) bill.

laurasalas said...

I'm also in with this week's 15 Words or Less poems:

They're based on an amazing pencil-tip sculpture this week!

Bish Denham said...

Thanks for hosting. This is my first time to participate.

I've posted two poems by a mystery poet. The challenge is to name who the author is. Really, it's not that hard.

The Stenhouse Blog said...

This week's poem on the Stenhouse Blog is by a group of third-grade students: What is Purple? Enjoy!

jone said...

Am interviewing Andi AKA "cloudscome". Love her haiku and she donated to Bridget's auction.
