So, as we all go through “the change” today, some things don’t change – like having to get back to the reality of work and bills.  I’ll have my take on the Santa Barbara Picture Book Retreat later, but I thought I’d share the poem I wrote in Joan Graham’s electric language presentation.  She read us many examples and gave us randomly selected words to include in writing  an impromptu poem, here are the words:  time, dark, sweep, voice, wonder.

Here is my poem:

Over time, a dark voice booms out

calls to glory

ricochet off locker doors

and hit the hearts of the players.

No wonder they will sweep.

He told them too.

If you have some poems from the weekend feel free to post them here…
