A poem wallet from Irene
I love pulling the mail out of the box and finding something exciting inside. This summer has provided a bounty of delights. (I'm not including everything that everyone sent because it's a lot of photos already and I want to give you a good look at poems.)
From Carol Varsalona:
From Joy, who enjoys correspondence more than just about anyone I know:
From Michelle Kogan:
From Irene, who used a book as her springboard:
From Robyn, who used a map of my locale for her clever steampunk critter:
I also shared the poem I received from Iphigene earlier.
A bonus shout out to my friend Amanda who sent me a care package of some of her handmade soaps.
One last quote:
Alice Adams wrote a sweet note to me after my first novel came out when I was 26, and I was so blown away that I sent her a bunch of stamps by return mail. I have no idea what I was thinking. It was a star-struck impulse.
Reflections on the Teche has the Poetry Friday round-up. Thanks, Margaret!
