Morning Porch Poems

If you haven't been following the extraordinary poetry flowering over at Dave Bonta's Morning Porch, you're missing something pretty wonderful. Luisa Igloria has been writing amazing poems, day after day, in response to Dave's tweet-length posts there. And there have been a few dances with other poets, too, including me. I've never been a good responder to formal prompts, but the prompting of the Morning Porch posts, and sometimes spotting a clever way to navigate between both Dave and Luisa's words, seems to work for me. Not that I'm in the Bonta or Igloria league: but anyone can play. They're very gracious. This morning I wrote a poem there titled Snowmelt at Tryon Creek.
