This is the poem I wrote for Diane Mayr for the Winter Poem Swap that Tabatha organized. (click to enlarge) Tabatha prompted us to
Write a twelve-line poem in which the first word of each line starts with the same letter (e.g. all of your lines start with "A") and the last word of each line starts with the same letter (e.g. all lines end with words that begin with "B").As you can see, I didn't manage to hit the prompt right on the nose!
Tonight I will celebrate the Solstice with close friends. We will eat Navajo stew and sage bread, and the Kachinas, who left at the Summer Solstice and took light and life with them, will come back bearing gifts and the promise of spring.
Our Solstice Poetry Friday Roundup Hostess is Heidi, at My Juicy Little Universe.
Speaking of Summer Solstice, we need to line up Poetry Friday roundup hosts for the first half of 2013! Leave your choice of Fridays in the comments -- I'll update the calendar on Saturday.
