It's Poetry Friday!
We spent New Year's Eve at St. Petersburg's First Night family celebration. NinjaGirl and I danced by the DJ stage, DJRobMan kicked some kid's butt at the Guitar Hero tent (making friends in the process -- they went off to try the moon-bounce boxing ring). The kids took their grandparents through a labrynth marked by kid-decorated paper bag lanterns. It was great! One of our favorite things was the heart-pumping Mt. Zion Progressive Drumline. The drummers reminded me of Nikki Giovanni's metaphor poem, "The Drum": The drum daddy says the world is a drum tight and hard and i told him Read what she told "daddy" (it's good starting the year right advice) here. Join in the first Poetry Friday of 2009 at A Year of Reading.
