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.

i'm having fun! i gathered up the lines over the course of the week and posted my patchwork poem and put the link here above.

sadly, i do need clarification -- like gautami -- on when/where we offer up our next original poems for the next round. here or in a different place? i'm worried if i put it here, it will get lost with the patchwork pieces and then we won't know what lines to grab from what and when and .... i'm the nervous twin. :)

This was very fun. On my way home from teaching yoga the sun was shining, and I couldn't wait to get at this. It turned out to be as wonderful as I thought. Thanks for the chance to work with y'all.

Hi, I'm sorry I didn't use Christy's poem. When I went to the post last week, it wasn't there. Maybe we could add hers to the next week.

Is it too late to add an entry? I'd like to try this. Now that I've read a few, I think I can do this.
