Today’s Poetry Friday parade is parked at CHECK IT OUT.
. . . .
This week I wrote a love poem of sorts to a stranger, which you can find here on twitter.
It was praise, appreciation, exaltation dashed off quickly for someone named a Happiness Engineer.
This is a real person working for WordPress,
who solved my kerbobble wobble of a recent post when the comment box had no gumption – wouldn’t function.
The Happiness Engineer sent me such a sweet note about receiving an original poem. (And didn’t even mention the typo!)
So now I’m of a mind to more often create a little ditty (nod to dear Michelle, Poetry Friday’s Today’s Little Ditty editor, author, creator, mentor) when I find myself saying a big thank you to the people who keep me functioning in work & at home (book finder, plumber, hurricane spotter, mole finder, etc.) Why didn’t I think of this before?
I am still so floaty that an email I sent into the void, asking for help, was read by an actual, factual, live human who bears a winsome work title & who responded efficiently with a fix. In keeping with this theme of rhyme poems of praise , I saw a poem sent along this week in social media from the Glasgow (Scotland) Women’s Library:
Roses are red,
Violets are blue,
Libraries, oh libraries,
We couldn’t live without you
Ain’t the world a lovely place? Here is one for lovely you:
In a moment to spare
you left a few words
lines of flair,
like trills of the birds
-Jan Godown Annino
So many appreciations for visiting today. I want to see what you’ve written at your lovely site. And . . .
I hope you can return here next Friday, Feb. 22, when I’ve been invited to join some keen bloggers
& post a few words about a new book in town. There will be a Give Away 🙂
Remember that Poetry Friday this week is hosted at CHECK IT OUT
