Poetry Friday: “The Journey”

poetryfridaybutton-fulllI need to thank Laura Purdie Salas for this poem – it was through one of her “15 Words or Less” poetry prompts that I was spurred to write this. Hope you enjoy it!

  1. Wow! So simple, and it could apply to so many different journeys. Beautiful, Matt!

    Hi Matt,
    I have been busy with other things, sadly, and not participating in 15 Words or Less lately. I love this photo and your words do make me think. And while the beauty of the snowfall that dresses the trees in white excites us, too much of a good thing causes angst for sure, like so many this winter. It is fragile and powerful at the same time, kind of like the choices along our way, don’t you think?

  3. Nice combination of words and picture, Matt. I almost never miss the 15 WOL challenge, I thoroughly enjoy the exercise each week.

  4. Love it, Matt! You picked the perfect photo for it too.

  5. I remember this, it’s such a gently and loving invitation, Matt. Those 15 words are challenging aren’t they? Sometimes I’m in awe what can be said. I’m glad you put your poem with the photo-beautiful, & like the friend’s idea of having it be the them for your blog & for publishing.

    Matt, I love this so much, I printed it and glued it in my journal. Thanks for sharing the image with the words.

    I like that one, Matt.
    Also, so funny — I just clicked over for the first time to listen to your voice-over demos and I laughed out loud at the first bit about the bathtub because I lived the nightmare last month. :) (Glad I can laugh about it now….)

  8. Loved this one of yours! It feels profound. Love the image, too. What app do you use to mash up your images and poems? I’ve been using Poetics, but I’m not happy with it…
