National Poet’s Day Was Yesterday
Here I am a day late (and a dollar short, too, but that’s another post) for National Poet’s Day, which was celebrated Friday, August 21st. In honor of this special day, I would like to introduce you to my blogging friend and poet whom I’ve often reblogged, Jenn Payne. She is undoubtably my favorite current/modern poet, and her Evidence of Flossing , a collection “which explores the essence of spiritual ecology; the human condition juxtaposed to the natural world and the possibility of divine connection.” (Goodreads)
This lovely collection uses original and vintage photographs, often of discarded dental flossers, to make a plea for our planet’s condition due to our wastefulness and carelessness. These photos and poems will make you read, think, reread, and think some more. Her work has a message, and the message is urgent. Earned 4.77 stars on Goodreads.
