Poetry Friday – Poetry Swap with Jone Rush MacCulloch

What fun the poetry swap was this summer. I was able to fit three of them into my schedule. The first one was with Tabatha: I wrote about it here. Today I’m writing about Jone’s poetry swap. My third poetry swap is coming late to Mary Lee Hahn. (She should get it tomorrow.)

Here are the lovely gifts of poetry I received from Jone. Have you had a chance to read Jone’s Solace in Nature book? It does provide solace! The photos and words are joyful, lilting, and comforting. (It was the latest and last Sealy Challenge book I read in August; I’ve been too busy with home improvement projects.)

Look at this journal Jone created with a photo from Ireland and a poem she wrote. So lovely, and I was just about in need of a new journal.

Finally, as a fellow tea lover, she sent these teas, including these special ones from Portland. I’m drinking a cup of #54 right now as I write this post.

Jone wrote about our poetry swap a couple of weeks ago here.

Thank you to Linda B. at Teacher Dance for hosting Poetry Friday today.

  1. Thanks for sharing your Swap bounty! Such gifts Jone has given the world…and tea! There’s not enough time to try all the tea in the world (but I’m trying!).

  2. I have Jone’s book and it is lovely I agree, Denise. I love that haiku, a story from the cracks, good or not so good? Imagination soars! Have a nice weekend midst all your projects!

  3. What a beautiful photo and haiku! Tea and solace, too! *happy sigh* đŸ™‚

  4. Lucky you! I also have the solace of Jone’s collection at my fingertips, and I love the new photo-haiku of your journal…just perfect. Enjoy your Portland tea!

  5. Denise, I just love the journal Jone made for you. I can imagine drinking tea and writing at the same time. What a sense of peace! I am going to take a peek at your swaps to others now. Enjoy the end-of-summer days! – Carol Varsalona

  6. I, too, was a lucky poetry swap partner with Jone – I did not know she had a book! Thank you for lifting that up; I’ll have to get my hands on a copy now.

  7. The poetry swaps are such fun! Your gift to me still makes my breath catch when I look at all the detail you put into it! The mandala box! The cento! The handmade dishcloths/scrubbers!
