Jan's Poetry Class--VACATION

These lessons, by one of our most consistent FaithWriters' Challenge Champions, should not be missed. So we're making a permanent home for them here.

Jan's Poetry Class--VACATION

Postby glorybee » Mon Nov 23, 2009 1:50 pm

Hi, poets!

I'm taking Thanksgiving week off--I'll be visiting my daughter and son-in-law in Florida, and won't be available to comment on contributions to this thread after tomorrow. See you with a new topic on Monday the 30th!

Jan,

I hope you have a safe, wonderful trip. Enjoy your holiday with your family. Will look forward to more lessons after Thanksgiving.

Thank you!

Very busy, but happy times for
All who need a rest.
Children and cousins
And grandparents too
Taking time to be together
In homey spaces
Or far away places
Not wanting to go back to work.

Have a great time, Jan!

Have a great vacation, Jan.

If you are near Venice, Florida, come by and say hi.
May God's gentle grace be with you.

And I was all ready to learn about a new type of poem called a "Vacation"--an odd little form in which you seek to emulate the linguistic peculiarities of another place, or time... :)

Have a great Thanksgiving in Florida, Jan!

Closing the Distance

Postby OldManRivers » Mon Nov 23, 2009 3:27 pm

Closing the Distance

Voyaging to the hearth in some other place,
Across expanses of miles on highways of grace,
Closer and closer, the embraces, they near,
And as loved ones await, fond memories appear.
Traveling, dreaming, the yearning it grows,
Into littles one’s arms this dear traveler goes,
Opening forever the hearts down the way,
Nearing closer and closer, on this coming-home day.
May God's gentle grace be with you.

We are down in Sarasota County, south of Tampa.

Been through Pasco County often. Our Uited Methodist offices are located in Tampa.
May God's gentle grace be with you.
