Sunday, every Sunday, let's have a community picnic. It's probably been a long week, and it's lovely to have a few minutes to sit back and relax and enjoy some good conversation in a less formal space. Feel free to bring something for the Picnic Basket - a poem you liked this week, a thought you had or something you experienced, or even something completely unrelated to poetry whatsoever that you just feel like sharing. Just take a moment to say hello, and maybe have a bite to eat; no one is going anywhere fast, and the shade promises some relief from the everyday heat. Let’s get to know each other a bit better, here under the branches of the poet’s tree.

I know a dog who loves asparagus, so a dog stealing a tomato is not too surprising. :)

The feature on you and your poems was lovely. Thank you for sharing.

Miss Dog loves most veggie scraps (although she seems to prefer potting soil to kale), so yeah, it could have been a bird, but...

Thank you for reading!

The last few weeks have been long and hard, but also beautiful and a wonderful gift. For an idea of what is going on, please see this tag on my blog.

I have been able to write one coherent poem during this time, My Father's Hands.

My access settings prevent me from publically cross-posting this, but: here is a poem I wrote for a friend a couple of weeks back.

A Sort of Love Poem
For the official record:
were my mind as liberal
with expression
as my heart is
with affection
I would proclaim
my fondness
as a cockerel
greets the sun:
deep chested
full throated
unabashed.

That is to say:
I would crow
my adoration
at such volume
and duration
that the neighbors
would, in frustration,
cite town ordinances
on keeping poultry
to quiet my enthusiasm.

I could easily crow my adoration for this poem. Such a wonderful use of bird imagery. This poem put a delighted grin on my face.
