I finished carving the block to make the postcards I will be sending out each day in February as a part of the World Peace Poets Postcard Project.
I will write a short poem about peace each day in February and send it out to one of the other members in my group.
I am looking forward to receiving cards back from other poets across the country.
Making your own postcard is optional.
For many it’s a fragrance that brings a memory fully to mind. Does the scent of evergreens, peppermint, mulling spices, or mothballs unwrap the holidays of the past for you?
Or is the feel of glitter, velvet, ice, or the deep warmth of a fire that makes you recall?
Which gustatory delight takes you back with its taste? Popcorn balls, chocolate covered cherries, or hot cocoa?
Is it the sound of bells, the shattering of ornaments, the tinkle of a music box, or the hoot of a toy train that harkens you to a certain moment?
Or is it the sight of glistening snow, tinsel strewn trees, or mountains of crumpled wrapping paper?
Whatever the sense, savor the memory and write it down.
