Thursday Thirteen


Here are thirteen poems I've posted on my blog over the last 2.5 years. I wouldn't expect you to read all 13, but here are some clues. Missing someone? Try #4, #7 or #8. Tired of winter? #13 is good. Ever wondered about gossip in a small town? #1. Had any really crummy jobs? Betcha can't beat #2. Do you like to paraphrase scripture? Think on #3. Nostalgia? #6, #11.

1. What I heard about you

2. Working for DeKalb Seed

3. On a theme from Habbakuk

4. The anniversary

5. Susanna looked East

6. Christmas Formal

7. Mothers of our Childhood

8. Daddy-lions

9. December 21

10. New and unread books and unopened music

11. Last day of July

12. Complementary Colors

13.The longest month

I just read the first one because it's close to my heart. Well. I lived on a small island where people knew when you sneezed - or thought they did. It drove me away... But I still have some good memories, thankfully. Your poem was very true.

My 13 are up.

Thanks for visiting She Lives and letting me know your TT is up!

Love the poems. A couple of them would set well to music. I can just hear "What I heard about you" as a country tune. "Last Day of July" as a folk tune.

It didn't make a melody in my head, and I don't know if maybe I took it wrong, but "Daddy-lions" brought up a chuckle. My dad was USAF. He hated the darned things, too!
