|"Confidence" by Nathan van Elden|
I've been having such fun this week exploring personified feelings!
Apparently, I'm not the only one. Either Jeannine Atkins came up with a fantastic DMC challenge or y'all missed me more than I realized. I'm guessing it's the former, though maybe a little of both?
In only seven days, we've gathered fourteen poems on our February 2017 padlet. Four of them have been posted as daily ditties: Cindy Breedlove's Concern, Sherry Howard's Fear, Linda Mitchell's Resolute, and Tabatha Yeatts's Creative Voice.
The first feeling I explored this week, Ennui, led to an unfortunate suicide (poor thing), so I decided to give Confidence a go instead.
the elvish imp,
will not be leashed
like some pointy-eared pup.
With a wiggle and woot,
and streak naked through the streets
just as fast as her little legs can scamper.

Post your poem that uses personified feeling anytime this month. For more details about the challenge, read my interview with Jeannine Atkins HERE.
All contributions will be included in a wrap-up celebration on Friday, February 24th, and one lucky participant will win a personalized copy of Jeannine Atkins's latest novel-in-verse from Atheneum Books/Simon & Schuster, Stone Mirrors: The Sculpture and Silence of Edmonia Lewis.
The Logonauts. Thanks, Katie!
