Someday...



Sunlight, Cornstalks, Barn

Students - I fell in love with sun shining through cornstalks the other day. And so I wrote about it. Thinking about this led me to think about the many ways and places I am enchanted by sunlight. So why not throw a party? A party in a poem.

Today's poem is a free verse poem, no rhyme at all. But do know that I read it aloud as I wrote, to listen for the music. I invite you to write a "Someday..." poem of your own if you wish!

Tabatha is hosting this week's Poetry Friday roundup at at The Opposite of Indifference with ideas for holding your own writing retreat, the Winter Poetry Swap, and a wise poem by Samantha Reynolds. We welcome everybody to join us each Friday as we share poems, poem books, poetry ideas, and friendship. Check out my left sidebar to learn where to find this poetry fellowship roundup every week.

  3. I take many photos of sunlight on things, love that you expressed my 'love' for sunlight on things, endless love! And that party, a sweet idea! A smile for today, and the sun was out after a snowy and cold week!

  6. I've been thinking a lot about sunlight these days Amy. In the morning I sit and watch it make the greenyelloworange leaves on the tree outside my window become sacred.

  9. Your poem reminds me how close we live now even more to the sun - having moved to the United Arab Emirates from Singapore. There is something to be said about this tribute to sunlight - it's gorgeous.
