More Words (poetry for an April day)

As we celebrate National Poetry month do not forget about spoken word. This comes from 2010, but it is timeless which is why we all read poetry (and literature) and pay attention to art.

Big Poetry Giveaway 2013

Yes, It is NATIONAL POETRY MONTH! 🙂  I so love this month. Don’t get me wrong, I love many other months as well.  At the end of this April, however, I will be giving away TWO books of poetry.  I will ship them to the winners (selected by the random list generator at random.org) in…

Perfectly Random

You do not have to be good. You do not have to walk on your knees for a hundred miles through the desert, repenting. You only have to let the soft animal of your body    love what it loves. ~from Wild Geese, by Mary Oliver The poem, excerpted above, knocks me out.   I have…

Full Moon Reading

Cards for a full-moon.  Past/Present/Future…what do the cards say on a rainy, gloomy day?  Remember where you came from. No matter how hard it gets, you are never alone.  In the future you can rise above petty emotions and delight in the abundance of your relationships.  I like this message.  Nice to have the coincidences…

August Postcards

            I was feeling a bit spontaneous last week and I signed up for a poetry postcard festival in August at Concrete Wolf.  The deal is you get a list of names (randomly generated) of those who have signed up to receive postcards.  In order to receive a postcard with…

Summer Reading List

It’s that time again!  Sometimes I wonder if I was drawn to a career in education simply due to the fact that summer meant a slower pace and a huge pile of books to read!  Now that I am mostly an administrator, it means that I don’t get the long teacher time off, but I…
