  1. A marriage proposal? Very effective example of a final line coming out of the blue (which sort of looks like the color of the snow in that striking photo). And the poem’s first two lines contain great imagery and use of language, Mary Jo.

    • Like you and others here, I love words and their power to be just that…life affirming. Thank you for your constant encouragement and support…and your own wonderful blogs which feature photography, videos, and tons of excellent writing doing the same for me. Hugs, hugs, hugs!

    • Thank you so much, Liz! I’m learning as I go and hope to exercise even more traditional elements of haiku. I’ll keep going but also look forward to your own poetry. It has a sacred or reverent quality which I enjoy and appreciate.

      • You’re welcome, Mary Jo. Thank you for your kind words about my poetry. I just had a tanka accepted for an anthology of postcard poetry, so I’m excited about that! I really enjoy postcard poetry, so I’m looking forward to reading the anthology.

        • Congratulations, Liz!! Now I’ve got to investigate the term, “postcard poetry,” in more depth, for on the surface it appears to relate only to the size of the poems. I suspect Rebecca is doing likewise. πŸ™‚
