A lot of good things were posted on the web this past week. Here are a few of them.
Louise Gallagher at Recover Your Joy read a prompt, read a poem, read another poem, and then wrote one of her own: "River Deep."
“Branch” by Erin Kilmer at Together for Good Poetry.
“Easter Earthquake” by Sarah Vanderveen at Once by the Pacific. (found her via @godgrrl, Cathleen Falsani)
“Bearing Much Fruit” by Maureen Doallas at Writing Without Paper.
“Worship” by Nancy at Poems and Prayers. And “The Picture.”
“I Can Hardly Imagine,” by Fred Sprinkle at I Force It to Rhyme. And take a look at “Snap Shot’s Lament.”
“Our ends,” by Justinian at delight and glory and oddity and light.
"The Language of Honesty at Work in Art" by Marcus Goodyear for The High Calling Blogs is both poetry and prose, and includes the Random Act of Poetry feature with a whole list of links to good poems.
“Henry’s American Dream,” by Billy Coffey for the High Calling. And on his own blog, a son teaches his father gentleness: “Letting Things Happen.”

“Time Lost and Found,” by Anne Lamott for Sunset Magazine. (Thanks to Kathleen Overby for the find.)
“Mike the Mechanic” by Gordon Atkinson for the High Callings Blogs.

In addition to the poem noted above, Louise Gallagher at Recover Your Joy also had a great prose piece: “Lifted Up.”
