I woke up today, glad to be home from a week of travel, and was suddenly aware it was Poetry Friday. No need to panic. My iPhone held this photo of a sculpture from the Modern Art Museum in Fort Worth, where we spent an hour trying to understand the questions modern art flings at us. Not nearly enough time, of course.
But I have you guys, and this day of poetry, and lots of time now to think about it all. Happy Poetry Friday!
The host today is Booktalking.
