Poetry Friday -- Summer Poem Swap: BIRDS!

Hemingway and I love the mobile Joy Acey sent all the way from Hawaii! Her poem about birds can be found on the...birds!


soar      dive
wing in flight
sing to us
at morning's
first light

by Joy Acey

As a bonus, there was this iridescent beauty:

and this wish:

What a fun surprise to find in the towering stack of mail that accumulated for two and a half weeks while my brother and I were making this happen:

Katie has the Poetry Friday roundup this week at The Logonauts.


  1. what a treasure....snail mail with GIFTS inside that include poetic thinking. You lucky duck!

    A feather to help dreams grow wings... take flight? It sounds like some bird songs would be welcome after your busy weeks of house prep and memories.

    Also - thanks for looking out for us, with that InLinkz problem. Whatever is different, it worked this week!

  3. What a clever mobile...and creative gift! I hope you have a wonderful summer vacation, Mary Lee.

  4. Beautifully done, and it must have been a special gift after your hard two weeks, Mary Lee.

    Hi, Hemingway! So cute! :)

    Happy Friday, everyone!

  6. Mobiles are wonderful! Art and flight all in one. What a clever poetic gift. Beautiful feather, too.

  7. I love the idea of 3D poems! What a fun way to make nature poetry even more visible. Thanks for sharing!

  8. Yes, 3D poems! Reminds me of your little painted haiku canvases for your brother. Lucky you--feather lights for your weekend!

  9. A poem that really takes flight! I'm sure the feather will tickle your fancy for some time. =)

  10. What a special poem swap from Joy. It is not only creative but magical in that it provides wishes and the urge to soar with the birds. I am almost ready to let the spring gallery fly.

  11. That is so cute! And as a special treat, Hemingway gets to enjoy it, too! I'm thinking he did not get to enjoy it to its fullest before it was time to rescue it!

  12. The feather wish poem caught my eye. Did you try it? I hope so.
