I've been reading quite a lot of Ted Kooser lately. Like Valerie Worth, his writing brings the most ordinary items gloriously to life.
A Spiral NotebookThe round up this week is hosted by Kelly at Big A little a. Do stop by and take in all the great poems being shared. Before you go, be sure to check out the love poems written for this week's poetry stretch results.
by Ted Kooser
The bright wire rolls like a porpoise
in and out of the calm blue sea
of the cover, or perhaps like a sleeper
twisting in and out of his dreams,
for it could hold a record of dreams
if you wanted to buy it for that
Read the poem in its entirety.
