Poetry Friday Earlybirds — UPDATED

*** Update ****
Thank you, all you early birds. My post will be slightly delayed this morning because my son lost his custom mouthguard yesterday at a park and I need to go search the park for his $#*^#$ mouthguard.

At 9am the post will go live with all the links from you lovely early birds. THANK YOU!


If you’re a Poetry Friday earlybird, please leave a comment and you will be added to the PF list tomorrow morning.

The main PF post will go live at 6am Friday morning.

    Hi, Katya. Good luck finding that mouth guard. (We were “rescued” once by a nice movie theater manager who found my son’s missing retainer on the theater floor.)

    Today, I am featuring the release of The Collected Poems of Lucille Clifton, 1965-2010. This book will blow you away because of the depth and breadth of Clifton’s work. A writing prompt for MS/HS students is included.


  19. Tabatha says:

    Hi Katya,

    I have a poem by Scott Armitage today: http://tabathayeatts.blogspot.com/
