Poetry Friday: Hope and Connection

Welcome to Poetry Friday. This week's round up is hosted by Sylvia at Poetry For Children

I'm at a loss for words when it comes to what happened at the U.S. Capitol this week. I think most of us had hoped that the turning of the calendar page would bring unification, peace, kindness and decency. What we saw on Wednesday in D.C. was absolutely the ugliest and worst of America. 

With that said, I still see glimmers of hope. Many of you are part of the New Year's postcard exchange, and you have or will receive this in the mail, but I wanted to share it with our community.

Connection, longing

Watching the great conjunction

Universal hope

I received a few goodies in the mail as well.

Linda Mitchell sent this beautiful bookmark.

And Jone Rush Macculloch sent this lovely postcard.

Thank you for delivering poetry goodness to my mailbox. It nourishes me. 


  1. I love seeing the treasures shared in the poetry postcards. These are lovely--and your photograph of the conjunction is gorgeous..

  2. Thank you for sharing these glimmers of hope.

  3. I wrote about my postcards, too, Kimberly, trying to celebrate those special parts of this terrible week. And I had the wonderful pleasure of watching the conjunction with my granddaughters. Thanks for the reminder of "connection". It seems so long ago!

  4. Happy New Year to you. I know...we are all just gutted at the despicable show of ugliness on Wednesday not to mention the loss of life. This community of positive and creative people helps me so very much. I love the words connections and longing next to each other. So very true.

  5. Kimberly, thanks for sharing your thoughts, words, and images. I hope we can all recover and refocus during this difficult time! Thanks also for joining the Poetry Friday gang this week, too-- so therapeutic!

  6. Surprised by joy in the mail. Thank-you for sharing your delights.


Thank you for stopping by and checking in. I love hearing from you.
