Hello and Happy Poetry Friday! Last week I found out that I won the giveaway on Carol Varsalona’s blog for In the Middle of the Night: Poems from a Wide-Awake House by Laura Purdie Salas and Angela Matteson. It arrived in the mail a few days ago and it is fantastic! Thank you, Carol, for the giveaway, and thank you Laura and Angela for such a wonderful book.

It is really fun to think about what everything does when you’re fast asleep. Of course, my mind goes to the creepy ideas: evil dolls, maniacal shredders, DIY slime that tries to take over the house, etc. But I decided to write a short poem that is more in line with the sweetness of Laura’s poems in the book.

  1. I love the picture of your two little ones reading. I have a snow globe that once belonged to my mother. My grandchildren love to press the button and bring snow flurries to the silver world inside it.
