Big changes happening here in my household which have my mind in a tumble of uncertainty. Of my three wonderful sons only one is home with me now and I spent the day with him yesterday, trying to establish a new normal. My oldest is in the Air Force, about to be deployed to the Middle East again, and my middle son is living away from home for a time.
I am afraid I totally dropped the ball with hosting Friday Poetry yesterday. I am so sorry to everyone who came looking, hoping to share and enjoy the dance. Thankfully, Mary Lee at A Reading Year picked up the baton and flew with it! See her round up HERE.
To try to catch up and find my place again, I will link here to all the poetry posts I am aware of. If I miss you please leave a comment and I will update. Hope your Saturday goes better than my Friday did!
