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: Pastor's wife, marriage advocate, eclectic homeschooler, mother of three, and domestically challenged homemaker--lovin’ life and livin’ deep in the heart of Texas.
I love to write and I hope to use that wisely, to encourage others, and for God’s glory. I seek purpose in the mundane. I want my kids to see God’s fingerprints throughout all of creation, learning, and life. As I teach our children, God is teaching me through this homeschool journey, too. I love Jesus, family, coffee, words, and the color teal.
