TGIF: A Reflection on This Week
#1 in my new series of Friday Favorites
Friday is always a good day to pause and reflect
on the week that is almost behind us.
What is YOUR FRIDAY FAVORITE REFLECTION for this week?
Does one bright and shining moment stand out to you?
I’d love to hear about it – you can leave a message for me at the end of this post.
My Friday Favorite Reflection is:
“Primavera: When Spring Break is Over,”
for the first time this week by Editor, Ron Harton, NatureWriting Literary Magazine.
I wrote this poem in 2015. I revised it recently and sent it out for consideration to this editor.
It is a collage or collection of events, people, and stories from many Spring Break trips to Puerto Rico. I combined these things with my imagination to create a memorable poem.

Do you take photographs or write in a journal when you are on a trip?
You can turn them into a poem or non-fiction essay.
Poetry is a good way to share your life experiences with an audience.
When you look back over this week, can you find some special people, events, travels or opportunities that just happened to pop up on your horizon? Friday is a great day to think about what you experienced this week.
What do you have to be thankful for this Friday?
I am thankful for good editors who make it possible for writers to share their work with a wide audience.
Write what comes to your mind today.
