Guess what today is? Are you thinking? I’ll give you a couple more minutes. Figure it out? No? Well, 200 years ago today, Walt Whitman was born. He’s always been one of my favorite poets. Organizations across the world are celebrating his work. Click this Walt Whitman link to learn more about this iconic man, and read many of his poems, and essays.
I would like to honor, and showcase a new poet, who obviously has a natural born talent. Please enjoy the following three poems written by Dhebi DeWitz. Her love of the Japanese style form, Haiku has intrigued her enough to give it a try, and she did brilliantly.
Warm sun shining down
Spending time doing nothing
I sit and day dream.
Lying on the deck
Mari snaps at sky-raisins.
Silly dog who eats flies.
Full moon shining down
fireflies begin their dance
magic fills the air
Thank you Dhebi, for being brave, putting yourself out there, and allowing me to share.
This truly is a beautiful time of year! My yard is bursting with color.
You know how I love my grandkids, well, I just had a 5 day visit from my youngest granddaughter, Harlow Rain, who will be 3 next month. What a sweet, sweet girl. We had so much fun, so much love to give.
