Sunday Scribblings: Compose

If you've read this blog in April, you know that I'm knee-deep in writing a poem a day. But for this Sunday Scribblings, I decided to take a break and enjoy the warm weather.

This is how I composed my Saturday. What follows are the events of the day.

****

It started out like this.






And then I shifted gears for some "me" time. I went to Harvard Square in Cambridge to visit ...

The Grolier Poetry Book Shop is the oldest poetry-only book store in North America, I think. Had a wonderful conversation with the new owner--they are now under new management, which should inject some much needed life into the store. I wish them great success as an independent bookstore and a Cambridge mainstay.

And here's what I bought ...



Aimee Nezhukumatathil's At the Drive-in Volcano. From there I walked around Harvard Sq.

(That's not me.)




Listened to some music.


And ended up here, before I headed home. This is Boston from the Cambridge side. Isn't she lovely?

For more compositions, visit Sunday Scribblings. And feel free to comment on my NaPoWriMo poems.

I loved seeing your photos...as it happens I had just this afternoon looked at photos of my trip to Boston a couple of years ago remembering what a good time I had while there and hoping that someday I'll get to return for more. Thanks for stopping by Spatter and leaving your kind statement.

Now I am anxious to visit and experience that lovely urban, visceral, esoteric Harvard Square.

Thanks for letting me wander along with you - recently there was a televised reading from that bookstore. I had a yearn to see it in real life and this may be close!! Thanks!
