I’ve been sharing poems around the blogosphere lately, and thought I’d highlight two links to great blogs that were kind enough to include my work.
First up, the talented and lovely Catherine Johnson shared my silly fleece poem that was inspired by her Detroit Zoo photograph of a submerged polar bear. Catherine has hinted at snapping great gorilla photos as well, so I’m sharing this snapshot of our family’s gorilla encounter at Boston’s Franklin Park Zoo this summer. That’s my son peering deeply into Kimani’s eyes. Check out Catherine’s poetry featured in a terrific new book called And the Crowd Goes Wild!
I also submitted a poem to David Harrison – yes THE award-winning, inspirational David Harrison – for inclusion in his Poetry Sunday feature. Millennial Monday’s Child is my revision of a classic nursery rhyme. I’m a Sunday child by birth, hoping to become a Saturday’s child as envisioned in this re-write. What are you?
