MOP (Month of Poetry) Has Arrived.




We're posting to our blogs most of the month for MOP. That's a poem a day, peeps. Here's my first offering.

The first winter snow
peacefully surrendering
silence is golden

Thanks for reading.

  6. Hey, my friend. No. It can be anything. I just started writing and it turned into a haiku. You will post yours on your blog? I'm still trying to get used to the new MOP format.

  9. Penny, I was thinking of you this morning. When you see your contact page, you'll have one reason why. I also wondered if you had time for MOP. Thank you, my friend.

  10. I thought long and hard about MOP, Robyn. But January in mind for doing some early (or maybe not so early) preparation for my book release in August. So, as tempting as MOP is, I'm sticking to my plans. "Stay strong, Penny! Stay strong!" But thanks fo much for thinking of me. And a huge thanks for contacting me :-)

  12. Hehehe, you gave me the giggles. You should see some of my comments. I left a word out of the comment I wrote on your blog. Sheesh. Well, I understand about MOP. I CAN'T wait to be in your shoes, Penny. Hug, hug, hug. I'm available in August for a blog tour if you have one.

  19. I love reading about the nature of things. Nature as a role model, peacefully surrendering and allowing more beauty to come. Well done Robyn

  20. Hi Robyn .. Happy New Year .. snow does bring that peaceful crystal clearness ... I'm sitting in sunshine - bliss! As Pam above says ... nature offers us much and always picks itself up giving us jewels of light, as well as dusty places where we could wallow, but it's better to roll around, pick ourselves up and dust ourselves off ... and get ready to rock and roll for the new day ...

    Happy New Year and I do hope 2015 is kind .. many thoughts and cheers Hilary

  21. Lovely, Robyn. We have had our first snow this year, much earlier than usual, but with sunshine it didn't stay long. Looking for a really nice snow, and I'm sure it will happen.
    Best to you in MOP. It's an adventure, but other writing goals prevented me from joining in this year.

  25. A poem each day? That sounds like a lot of work. I'll be reading!

  26. I'm NOT posting them to the blog everyday. I'd have to drive away my pals. Ha. But I'll post a couple each time. Thanks, Stephanie.

  27. Robyn, Happy New Year to you and yours=. We just had our first snowfall in the foothills behind our house. It promptly melted the next day. But it was beautiful to look at while it lasted,
