Today’s prompt at the Ethical ELA Open Write is to create a one-sentence poem. Such an easy way in. I read back through my notebook until I found an entry that had a bit that seemed like it could be a poem.
QUIET WATERS In that last year, I circled the lake, investigating every cove along the shore until I discovered the outfall -- a small stream that would carry me away, silently slipping into quiet waters where a single paddle stroke would do, where simply floating for an entire morning would be an acceptable option. ©Mary Lee Hahn, 2021
Writing in a community is such a pleasure, and I am blessed with so many different communities. Poetry Friday is a constant, as are my two new poetry groups — Sisters and Inklings. I like dipping into the Slice of Life and Ethical ELA communities. The best, though, is the community of one — just me and my notebook most every day after exercise and before reading.
