Poetry Tips: Stay-cation

More and more people are using their vacation time to stay at home instead of spending money they may or may not have to go elsewhere. This week, write poems on your “dream stay-cation” whether it is working in the garden, lounging by the local pool or playing in the sprinklers with your kids.

Good luck to all who try it, please stop in again next week…
