introducing Elizabeth Crawford!
A December thanks to Tawnya Smith (Yousei Hime) for our holiday month of poem prompts. Really they were about taking what was right in front of our faces and using that to make poems. Then all ended with a well stirred bowl of poemsoup – all well done! (and we love anyone who quotes Bjork lyrics!)
Is it January already, said the rabbit with a hat, and even Wednesday so so soon as well? Yes, off to the tea party, late and hardly knowing a thing about the topic called “when”! Such is the painting on the wall when you’re both homeless and homed. But no matter that…
Here’s to utter a hearty good cheer and welcome to Elizabeth Crawford who will be doing our new year January poem prompts! Is there anyone here who doesn’t already know Elizabeth’s good voice and generous regard? Only the newest of the new. Elizabeth has been a long-time participant and previous prompter with us here. We welcome her back!
She says of herself she’s been writing poems for over thirty years, but started later in life. Me, I think some people just have poems in their skin, in their ears, in their eyes – and it’s not a matter of when you grasp a pen to write something with paper and ink. That to me is Elizabeth – she’s always been about expression and poems, whether or not she even knew it herself.
Please do say hello and let her know your appreciation for her labor in our regard.
