This week’s Poetry Friday is hosted by Kathryn Apel
The writing group I belong to meets on Tuesdays. This is always an incentive to have something to share: a work in progress, an idea to be fleshed out, a piece that has been revised. This Tuesday, I had nothing. I wrote a Slice of Life, however, as a way to jump start an idea I’d been mulling over: how my perspective of winter, my first here at the farm, had morphed since it first arrived in November.
Then, with an hour to go until writer’s group, I “found” this poem in that Slice of Life, with a little inspiration from a quote from Frances Hodgson Burnett’s The Secret Garden: “If you look the right way, you can see that the whole world is a garden.”
