Poetry Friday Word-ish for Tomorrow, question for Imelda
This week’s Poetry Friday Word is a Theme…centered around WEATHER.
No matter how smart we humans think we are, the whole of our lives are controlled by the weather. In Michigan, the world stops in its tracks when we have a blizzard in the winter. Our schedules and desires change when it reaches 72 degrees in June and the sun begins to brown our skin. Rain dampens plans, hail requires trips to the auto body shop and the insurance office, and tornados change our sleeping arrangements. We are simultaneously fascinated and pissed off with bad weather…and sometimes good weather, when it requires a job of us (like that damn lawn that needs mowing).
For Poetry Friday tomorrow, tell us about your experience with weather…good, bad, indifferent. Does it inspire you? Does it make you nostalgic? Does it send you straight for the liquor cabinet? You may expound away in story form, poetry, song stylings, Technicolor video, scratch-n-sniff (good luck with that one), photos, readings from Poor Richards Almanac….
Question: Would you wear someone else's shoes? If you were to, say, buy some used shoes in a thrift shop? Do I dare donate half a dozen slightly worn pairs of shoes, or is the thought of the general public that worn shoes are icky (like used underwear, but not THAT icky)?
