Robin’s Poetic License for the month of July is coming up in a couple of days. I like joining in her poetic projects because it give me a chance to stretch my poetry skills a little – something I haven’t done much of since high school. Poetry is also a great form of expression, and I like to tailor mine towards God, my faith, and what God has been teaching me or showing me.

Having said all that….

This month’s poetic form is a historic first – It’s a PENSIEVE.

Robin, under a little jibing and a little teasing from a friend, has taken on the task of creating her OWN form of poetry.

By the way, I’m really glad she decided to call it a PENSIEVE and not a ROBIN. Pensieve sounds way cool. 🙂

The basic idea is that you start with a subject (title) and write five lines of poetry, each addressing one of the five senses. It doesn’t take long of reading Robin’s posts to agree that it suits her perfectly. Robin is so very descriptive, dealing with all the senses, from every angle, living life to the fullest – It’s perfect.

So enough about that. Care to join along? Not only would it make Robin feel more encouraged, stepping out on this brave task, but it would be neat for it to be a huge hit and debut with a bang!

Visit Robin for the complete instructions and check back here Friday for my own version

Hey, y’all! I’m Amber and I wear many hats. I drink a ton of coffee and I’m constantly sweeping crumbs off the floor. After 18 years of homeschooling, I’m getting close to graduating my third child and now we are starting over at preschool with our fourth, Lil Miss Mouse. She keeps us young and she’s the main reason for my excessive coffee consumption. Drink up!
