My words are playing hide

difficulty finding them in the nooks,
crannies, and crevices of my chaotic brain!
That, my friends, is why you all haven’t heard from me for several weeks. I’ll be back once I can round up those elusive words. Hopefully sooner rather than later! 😉 Have a blessed weekend! 🙂

For today’s post, I thought that I would share 10 quotes from ten of my favorite poets. Since I had difficulty narrowing the poets down to just ten and then choosing which quotes to share, I may make this a monthly or bi-monthly post. Time will tell. 😉 You will notice that the last quote is a full poem from Emily Dickinson. That’s because I couldn’t just pick one line and because…well…it’s Emily Dickinson. 😉 May you enjoy these quotes as much as I do.
