The great poetry blogger, Tabatha Yeatts, set up a poetry swap last summer. I was a participant and jumped at the chance to partake in a special holiday exchange this December. My swap partner was Mary Lee Hahn. Last week, Mary Lee wrote about the solstice poem she sent to me. Here's the poem I sent to Mary Lee.
Mary Lee wrote that she used a prompt supplied by Tabatha. I didn't use the prompt, rather, I was inspired by the French painter, Eva Gonzales, and her painting "Morning Awakening." The woman in the painting looks so cozy and warm and I imagined her thinking, "Ah, no work today!"
The final 2012 Poetry Friday Round-Up is being hosted at Carol's Corner. See you there!
