jillypoet: mom trying to write

Each day I wish I had invented waterproof sticky notes (for shower inspiration) or pen-friendly diapers to get down all my quirky thoughts that I am sure are relevant and publishable. And so God (actually another writer-mommy) sent me The Blog.

Patchwork Thursday


Need something to liven up your Thursdays? Why not try a patchwork poem, or a cento!

Each Thursday I will post a patchwork poem culled from some of my favorite poets. Then, if you'd like to participate, add a link to a poem of your own in the comments section. The following Thursday, paste a link to your poem. You can see my first attempt, Me and My Shadow, here.

To keep it simple:

1st & 3rd Thursdays of the month, post a link to a poem all your own.

2nd & 4th Thursdays, post a link to your newly created patchwork poem!

If you'd like to participate, email me at jillypoet@verizon.net and I'll include you on my sidebar.
