Welcome to Sunday Poetry. If this is your first visit you can read about the purpose and inspiration of my Sunday poetry blogs here.
I’ve spent the weekend celebrating a “big” birthday for my husband. All our sons and their families arrived to spend it with us here in NY, and it’s been wonderful. Since birthdays are much on my mind, I found a wonderful birthday poem to share with you. Crossroads by Joyce Sutphen isn’t simply about celebration, it’s about what she plans to do with the second half of her life. Read and enjoy.
Remember, we read poetry together here for the pure pleasure of the experience. There are no quizzes, no right ways to read or contemplate the poem we share. Absolutely no dissecting allowed. Just come along for the “read.” What line, word or thought will you carry with you this week? If you’d like to tell us where the poem took you? We’ll listen.
Remember, too, there is a special giveaway in progress for those who comment on any Sunday Poetry blog before year’s end. See the details here.
