DMC: "Wrinkles" by Judith Valko
Wrinkles lined upon her face
reveal the woman’s life of grace
as crow’s feet radiate from eyes
once filled with laughter
forehead laced with worry lines
thinning lips and shriveled brow
stories told of then and now
a life of lessons gladly learned
all these wrinkles she has earned

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 this month is to write a poem that finds beauty in something that is not usually considered beautiful.
Post your poems on our November 2017 padlet. While some contributions will be featured as daily ditties this month, all contributions will be included in a wrap-up celebration this Friday, November 24th. 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.
