create {poetry thursday}



it is natural for us to create for
He who made us also
made infinitely greater things than
we can comprehend
so
it is only natural that we should feel drawn to
form, mold, sketch, write, and
sing our imperfect melodies
in worshipful imitation
of the one perfect Creator

Hello, friends! In order to boost my own creativity and get more poetry and trees back on this dear blog, I've decided to start posting twice per week. Monday will now be my usual bookish post (instead of Tuesday), and my second post will either be a "wordless wednesday" (photos) or "poetry thursday."

What do you think? Are you looking forward to the new posts, or do you prefer the once-a-week schedule? Did you miss the poems and trees (or maybe you're new and have been wondering why in the world I chose "poetree" as my blog name)?

  1. I'm quite excited for the new schedule! Yes, I've been wondering about your blog title, and now it's starting to make sense. :)

    1. Haha, whoops. It started out as a poetry blog, but then I added book reviews about a year(?) later, and the poems have become few and far between! I was also regularly posting a "wordless wednesday," which tended to be photos of trees.

      Thanks for the feedback!

    1. That's so good to hear! I used to post two to three times per week, but I got overwhelmed and knocked it down to one. Hopefully I can keep up the pace! :)
