I'll be using tomorrow's edition to lead in to National Poetry Month, during which I'll be featuring poems in the voices of the inanimate world.
As humans we do a lot of talking--in my house especially--and it's easy to imagine animals and plants finding language to express their views and emotions. But it's a little more of a stretch to put words in the nonexistent mouths of things, to hear the voices of the objects around us, and when they come through clearly it's an exciting look into another world.
If you're planning to join in Poetry Friday tomorrow, please consider posting a poem in the voice of an object. I'll offer two, and look forward to seeing you here!
