Welcome to Sunday Poetry. If this is your first visit you can read about the purpose and inspiration of my Sunday poetry blogs here.
After putting up my book trailer on Friday I decided we needed a poem that was reminiscent of that mountain scenery. I found Parker’s Mountain by Kate Knapp Johnson to share with you. And what a lovely find it is. Do you remember being poised on the brink of adolescence? Breath held, cocooned in childhood? Do you remember seeing the world through different eyes?
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.
