DMC: "I'll Wash, You Dry" by Robyn Hood Black
I'LL WASH, YOU DRY
Pile of dishes in the sink -
remnants of our food and drink.
Fulsome meal and laughter, too -
now we have a job to do.
Messy saucepan, crusty cup;
we’ll need time to clean this up.
Spray of water, sudsy foam –
we are grateful for our home.
here at home.

Click HERE to read this month's interview with Carol Hinz, Editorial Director of Millbrook Press and Carolrhoda Books, divisions of Lerner Publishing Group. Her challenge is to write a poem that finds beauty in something that is not usually considered beautiful.
You have until today, November 30th, at 5:00 pm (EST) to join in! Post your poem on our November 2017 padlet and I will add it to the wrap-up presentation HERE. One lucky participant will win a copy of The Sun Played Hide-and-Seek: A Personification Story by Brian P. Cleary, illustrated by Carol Crimmins, and published by Millbrook Press earlier this year.
