VerseLove – Day 24 of 30

Jessica Sherburn is our host for VerseLove at today, inspiring us to write Found Annotation poems. These are also called Talking Back to the Text poems. You find a short passage of text to read and annotate, and talk to the text.

The Postcard Project

In Malaprop’s Bookstore 


I saw it.  

The Postcard Project. 

52 Weeks of Art Journaling

Via snail mail.

Perfect for my grandkids, 

I thought, 

Thumbing through, 

Send a card weekly 

and ask them 

to create their own art

and ask their mama 

to send me a picture

of their work.


I started with 

A good deed.

“Nana filled the birdfeeders

In the garden,” I wrote.

“What good deed

did you do this week?” 

I can’t wait to hear!

For this week, I might pick 

On My Plate –

What did you eat today?

I’ll draw a tomato sandwich.

I wonder what the babies

Are eating. 

They love Nutella.

Or maybe it’s our favorite 

Music or song.  I can draw

Abba singing 

Slipping Through My Fingers

Knowing it’s for real. 

I wonder what they are

Dancing to these days.  

Maybe Five Little Speckled Frogs,

Eating the most delicious bugs.

Maybe I’ll draw a still life

of my Aleve bottle.

So many choices in 

The Postcard Project.

Plenty to keep Nana writing,

Plenty to keep the babies 

Writing back.  

Proverbs 17:6 

Grandchildren are the crown of the aged, and the glory of children is their fathers.
