Strolling through the WordPress Reader, I came upon Whimsygizmo’s post for today (a link to it is below.) I give her credit for coming up with this brilliant idea of “magnetic poetry.” After reading her wonderful poem to her mother, written via those little fridge magnets that are actually words, I had to do so myself. Here is my magnetic tribute to my mother, Eunice King, who was known for the last 70+ years of her life as Pat Dykstra. This picture of her was taken a few years after her marriage to my dad and ten years before my birth.
Happy Mother’s Day to you, Pat, and to all of those who have furthered your influence in my life. Even if they aren’t mothers, they certainly helped me give birth to creativity.
Now, I hope you go see Whimsygizmo’s magnetic tribute to her mother here.
I challenge all who read this who sport those magnets on their refrigerators to do the same. Take a photo of your poem and post them in your blogs. Be sure to send a link to the magnetic poem in your blog to me and to Whimsygizmo via comments!
