The Bathtub Sea

A sailboat slips across the sea
   over the waves to the Island of Knee.
A submarine dives down below,
   to skim the reef at Sunken Toe.
A hole opens up. The boats circle round,
   until at last they run aground.

Recycled Rocket

A pasta box,
a yogurt cup,
a bit of help
to tape them up,

a twisty tie,
a plastic spoon–
a rocket racing
to the moon!


Welcome, welcome one and all to today’s Poetry Friday celebration! It’s great to see you. I’m looking forward to savoring what everyone’s brought to share.

It’s now officially February, my least favorite month of the year. Winter is old and boring now. I want spring! We need something to do to pass the dark, cold hours until the crocuses bloom. It seems that every year around this time, we adopt some kind of art project. Last year we made a enough rainbow loom bracelets to cover our arms up to our shoulders. The year before that we made hundreds of pipe cleaner people and then houses and towns for our pipe cleaner people to live in. What project will we take up this year? Building with recycled materials is always fun. How are you whiling away the winter hours? Other than writing poetry, of course!
