The finish line is in site.  The 30 Poems in November challenge is at its end.  One more day of poeming and I will be ready to revise my poems, picking one to read at the celebration held at Smith College's Poetry Center in three weeks.

Many, many thanks to family and friends who supported my efforts.  I am blessed, as are our students, by your generosity. For those who may wish to give but haven't yet, simply click on this link: 30 Poems in Nov! Linda Neas. Click on Donate Now and follow the directions.

Today's prompt was to write a love poem (my favorite!).  Here is my contribution:


The alarm serenely plays 
a gentle calling to awaken. 
I roll over, gathered in by your arms. 
Snuggling, we begin our daily ritual of life together. 
Giggling over silliness, 
we rise to greet the morn, 
giving thanks for another day to dance 
before breakfast; 
to sing harmony to each 
others thoughts; 
to play like children 
in awe of everything.

Again, thank you for all the support both emotional and monetary.  I am truly grateful!
