Poetry Friday and Madness Poetry

So I’m out of the Madness Poetry competition — I got knocked out in the second round. Thank you to everyone who voted for me and took the time to vote for others, as well! The poetry is still going strong, though, so head over today and vote for your favorite of the remaining matchups! https://madnesspoetry.com/matchups


Today, my kids made a pun when they thought someone said, “soul-er” powered instead of “solar” powered. It stuck with me… so I penned this little poem. Happy Poetry Friday!

The things we say can form friendships
and help build confidence.
Or we can choose words
that make other’s laugh —
at somebody else’s expense.
Words can be lovely and gracious —
or they can be salty and soured.
Just know that the words
you choose to use
are always “soul-er” powered.
