I wrote this golden shovel last year on Day Five of the Poetry Pep-Up – but I’d already shared my ‘How Do You Like to go Up in a Swing’. I wasn’t sure this was finished, so I didn’t share it… and forgot about it, until I stumbled on it this week.
With distance, I can say it is finished. Sharing it today – because we can never have enough sweet words.
Speak Love Speak with eyes of love so that your heart is soft in your mouth. Be patient; chew words like wax until warm and brimming with sweet honey for humankind. © Kathryn Apel 2021 - All rights reserved Strike line; Love is patient and kind. 1 Corinthians 13:4a.
Denise is hosting the Poetry Friday link collection this week at Dare to Care. Thanks, Denise.
I’ve been engaged in some wonderful poetry discussion on Twitter in recent days, about the value of poetry – and the age-old conundrum of poetry being a hard market to crack. Neal Zetter pointed me to his recent blog post, outlining his plan to make poetry more visible – starting with the bookshops. Worth a read! 🙂
