Poetry Friday - Inktober Finale

It’s Friday! And you know what that means: Poetry! Want to know more about Poetry Friday? Click this link right here. And be sure to check out Linda's blog, Teacher Dance, to see this week’s round up of wonderful poetry related posts, blogs and goodness. 

I am giving away a copy of Ben Hatke's Mighty Jack and the Goblin King!

 Be sure to enter!

I did it! 31 poems in 31 days. It may seem like a small feat to some, but I'm pretty proud of myself. Most of them won't see the light of day after this month, a few turned out pretty good, and ALL of them were absolutely fun to write. Which were your favorites?

I am hoping to keep the momentum going as I start NaNoWriMo. Because I did Inktober, I know to expect the mid-month slump and that I can power through it. This is always a fun time of year. 


  1. I've enjoyed seeing the fiendish fruits of your labor, Rebecca!

  2. Your 'inktober' ended in spooky land, Rebecca, all fun. I love the first one, simple & perfect for a scare & a dream. "Dull skull" made me laugh. Best for nanowrimo!

  3. Woo hoo! 31 poems--and art--in 31 days is impressive. I've enjoyed seeing them through the month. The dull skill made me laugh, too. Good luck with NaNo!

  4. Wow! You knocked it out of the ballpark on your last poem! I've enjoyed them all, but super impressed with such a strong finish after 31 in a row. There was such a great variety...and fun ill-ink-strations, too!

  5. I like them all, Rebecca. I hope NaNoWriMo is going well for you, too. I am already feeling tired!

  6. Congratulations on 31 in 31! I really loved that last one - "sending kaleidoscopes of color to the ground" is beautiful!

  7. Quite a menagerie of poems you have Rebecca. I especially like your poem of
    "the wind" "whispering," and outspread wings," Thanks!
