The Poetry Friday round-up is here so leave your links in the comments and I’ll round them up through-out the day. (Note, I’m on West Coast so expect some delay.)
I had so much fun doing this audio of the first poem in my book Hugging the Rock that I thought I would repost it for Poetry Friday. It’s called, NO ROOM. I hope you like it.
Read about the evolution of the poem NO ROOM from its inception here or read about the $1000 schloarship contest for teens who create a book trailer for Hugging the Rock here.

Thanks, Laura. Yes, that’s really me. I really enjoyed making the recording with my little “make do” system. I had a set of Erik’s headphones that had a mic, one ear covered and the mic propped up on a coffee cup so it didn’t dangle. I used a free program, not Audacity, something else. I’d love to do more audio things.

I would call this more of a poetic thought than a poem but it’s something I might go back and play with at a later date.
Thick, like butterscotch pudding,
paint pools on the canvas
until I push the brush
making waves from corner to corner
drops of yellow to drops of orange
a droplet of red, then another,
swirling the bristles until the colors
blend then burst
across the page
like a sunrise
calling for me to come out and play.

Hope for me is many things, both negative and positive. I see things in many perspectives. For me personally, hope is that voice in the back of your head that always pushes you forward. The small words of encouragement when you achieve a goal. Slight praise from those around you. The gleam in the eyes of those around you as you impact their lives. The look in a wife’s eyes as she watches the love of her life take his last breath. The first thing a little boy sees when his hero walks into the room…his mom. A college student who cries every night because she doesn’t know where life will lead her, but she knows that she has a purpose in life. A colony of ants in formation after a storm as they try to start their lives over again. The neighborhood mailman as he drops off his last letter.
I hope this helps. Hope is a pretty deep subject for me. I like that you’re doing it. 🙂 My name is Shay by the way. 😀 Good luck with this all.
