Our Wonderful World

When
and
where
and
how
and
what
are absolute and true.

But none of it would matter much
without the likes of you.

WHEW! We made it! A month of wandering the world, wondering about wonders, and writing poetry. 

Awards for collaboration, commitment, camaraderie and creativity go to Carol Wilcox and Kevin Hodgson. We stayed together through thick and thin, through narrative and haiku, through rhyme and free verse. Thank you, thank you, thank you for coming on this journey with me! 

There are wonders to be found everywhere we look in our world. The ordinary variety can be found close to home. Scattered throughout the world are ancient, modern, engineering, and natural wonders amazing enough to make "The Lists." 

But none of the wonders experienced on their own are nearly as wonderful as they are when you can ooh and ahh with a fellow wonderer. It's this realization I tried to capture in my Hallmarkian poem today.

Thank you Carol and Kevin for writing with me EVERY single day (and also to Carol V., Catherine, Collette, Margaret, and Jone for joining in occasionally).

Kevin has a sound poem, "The Wonder of People," with which to end our month.

Carol has two poems today, one for the Poetry Club, and one for ME! Thanks, Carol!!


Happy National Poetry Month 2014!

  2. Hallmarkian or not, this is perfect, Mary Lee! Bravo to you, Carol, Kevin for writing a poem every day. Reading all the poems has been like looking at these wonders through a kaleidoscope: each poem revealed a different facet of the marvels of our world. Thank you, thank you, thank you!

  5. It was a marvelous time reading all your poems, plus those of Carol's, Kevin's and others, Mary Lee. "Hallmarkian" can also mean a "wonder". Congrats on a month well done!
