Poetry Friday: What Brings Poetry

This week, Poetry Friday is hosted by Elizabeth Steinglass.

Laura Shovan’s February Found Object Poetry project has provided a daily dose of poetry play.

The image that spoke to me this week was contributed by Matt Forrest Esenwine. At first, my reaction was, what is that?  But further inspection, brings poetry.  Click on the link above to find more poetry inspired by this picture.


A mess. Debris to be cleaned, then

a breath-catching glint

thrown mid swing.

Huddled. Just so.

by divine design.

  1. Hi, Julie. Thanks for linking back to the found object poem project. For me, your poem brings my attention to how precarious that nest is. Such a narrow ledge! But that’s like life itself.

  2. This morning, I read this in The Art of Description, by Mark Doty: “The poet turns to the natural world, pays close attention, and is rewarded with instruction.” You’ve done this beautifully in your poem.
