A Mosaic of Poems
One of the interesting aspects of receiving five or six poems a day in my email inbox is the variety of subject matter, poets, and themes. For instance, these are the poems I woke up to this morning:
A poem about that unique color, spring green: "My Daughter Laughted" by Katrin Talbot
A poem about a bear from a Native American poet: "Bear Path" by Joseph Bruchac
A passionate soliloquy: "Molly Bloom's Soliloquy" by James Joyce
My favorite poem of the day. It's by Marge Piercy and it's called "Seven Horses". I love the imagery, the structure of the stanzas, and can relate to the yearning that Piercy expresses in the last stanza. Brilliant.
