I’ve been so busy writing a syllabus and planning my English Composition course that I didn’t have much time yesterday to write a poem. It was one of those days when I wrote the poem in my mind. At the post office I stood at a table, quickly sketched out a draft, and then copied it onto the postcard. Signed, sealed and delivered in ten minutes.
My desk, with today’s card and my journal on top of my laptop.

Love this photo. It’s almost a poem itself.
it’s a beautiful work space!
This is beautiful, Christine. I read what you said about being busy, but I still find my fingers searching for a link to read it…ha! I agree with Collin about the picture being a poem in itself.
Are you teaching freshman comp? They were my favorite students. I’m so excited for all the new doors that are opening for you. Best wishes for a wonderful semester!!
I’m so behind on my poetry postcard project because of daily life and my child readying for school. Your writing space is nice. Hope all your ventures turn out as expected. Have a great day.
