Poetry Friday: Dipping into the Pool


Hello, Poetry Friday, I’m so glad to be here!

Thank you, to Donna at MainelyWrite for hosting today.

I’ve been collecting Laura Shovan’s found objects poetry project images on a google doc.

I’ve always been attracted to “found” objects for poetry.  It’s welcoming, an invitation to join in and discover. Thank you, Laura, for your daily inspiration.

The heart holds curved pools

while geometry refracts

life trapped in silver.

My thumb and finger would drive the eraser wheel

along the edge of my mother’s desk.

The scalloped metal scraping against my skin,

I pressed and spun a path


pink line


on the wooden surface

along the edge of my mother’s desk

until the blue broom turned

to whisk them
