I always look forward to Mondays as a happy time of getting together to share the joy of poetry, but in setting up this post, I'm am all too conscious of the tragic loss of human life in Connecticut last week. All of us at Real Toads send our deepest condolences to the bereaved families, along with our love and prayers. Let us dedicate this open link to the children and their teachers, all the brave people who did their utmost to protect the vulnerable, and those who lost their lives.

Happy Open Link Monday ! my deepest condolences to the bereaved families, along with my love and prayers.
thank you, Kerry. i feel rather a mess this morning, to tell the truth. such BIG love to all of you. love, love love.
I didn't know this was going to be dedicated to them and coincidentally my poem is also written for this instance of such sadness.
Thank you, Kerry for your heart...and all Toads also...thank you.
I happily will go back and dedicate this poem. It is too soon for me to write about the event in question, but this poem loves teaching and children and community.
I apologize, the poem I posted was posted before I read the Monday Morning message...I hope I did not offend anyone...I am such an ass.
There I posted another that fits the theme a bit better. Sorry.
Warm holiday wishes to all.
happy Monday everyone, I've linked up a poem inspired by my Rachel and her squiggle today. now off to visit you all
Kerry, I was inspired by your dedication of Open Link Monday so I wrote another poem and just posted it, not trying to over post, but the muse called
You are welcome cloudfactor5 - the spirit of this open link is an open-hearted one.
I apologize for not having read the text...I just dashed in this morning and linked up as per normal. I don't think I would have written on this subject in any case, but I wouldn't have linked something totally unrelated, either. Sorry about that, gang.
A very nice tribute to the senseless loss of so many precious lives.
I wrote my poem on Saturday to express my sorrow at Friday's horrendous events. The poem I will link today is one I have been working on with poets' favourite words, when I can finally get it to make sense.
i managed to string some fresh words together, like holiday lights, maybe. i hope no one minds me posting a second link. love xoxox!
kerry, I was going to post my Newtown poem, but today an unexpected blessing came my way, and I just wrote this. I hope all can find some solace in my poem. Take heart: Night only casts a pall when we forget to turn on our lights. Keep your lamps trimmed and burning, folks, and remember to hug every kid you know extra hard. Love love love, Amy
