Saturday Good Reads

Good poetry, good prose, a lot of good articles, a video -- and a cool painting, too. Not to mention a three-part exploration of what Sky Mall can do for your backyard -- and for your neighbors.

It was a good week for good stuff online.

Poetry

Bone Against Stone” by Amy Sorrells.

Unspoken for better or for worse,” by Fred Sprinkle at I Force It to Rhyme.

Poetry is Shorter,” by Phoenix Karenee.

The Slave Soul,” by Justinian at Delight And Glory and Oddity and Light.

From Boy to Man,” guest poem post by Pete Marshall at Leslie Moon’s place. And a poem he posted on his own site, "Act Two, Scene One."

Close as a Whisper,” a romantic poem by Leslie Moon.

Bruce Bond’s “Wake” – How a Poem Happens.

What I Remember” by Melissa at All the Words.

Another Poem – Baptism” by Marcus Goodyear at God Word Editing.

Prose

Spreading Stories” by Louise Gallagher at Recover Your Joy. l

God is still in the miracle business,” by Larry Meredith at Night Writing in the Morning Light.

"Growing Cold" by Billy Coffey. And his “Renoir, Rockwell and Jesse,” post for The Master’s Artist.

The Impermanence of Things,” by Rod Dreher at BeliefNet.

K.M. Weilland guest posts at The Master’s Artist, "The World View of Christian Fiction."

The Way It Is,” by Melissa at The Far Blue Hills.

Bookstore Vikings” and “First Bookstore Signing” by Kathleen Overby.

Video

Natalie Merchant sings old poems to life at TED. (Thanks to @TchrEric for the link.)

Painting

"From the Foothills to the Peaks," watermedia on paper by Randall David Tipton.

Special Bonus

Kathy Richards, the incomparable @katdish, posted a three-part series on statues you can buy from Sky Mall to decorate your backyard and, well, offend your new neighbors (and that's the point; you have to read it). Part 1 is the African Safari. Part 2 is the Garden of Tolerance and Diversity. And Part 3 is -- Zombies! And the best part of all of this -- she's not making this up; you really can buy this stuff.

I'm honored to be in your good read for Saturday. Thank you so much for having Pete here you don't know how much that means (a little teary). He's a great guy with a wonderful story and talent.
Grateful for you and how you always see the best in others.
Thanks Glynn
