It’s almost winter! I find myself writing about the seasons over and over again. I circle back to that topic the same way the seasons themselves circle around each year. That’s so comforting to me.
Here’s a riddle-ku from Lion of the Sky: Haiku for All Seasons. Can your students guess the answer without looking at the lovely art from Mercé Lopez?
And you can find lots of related videos that I made plus a downloadable activity sheet to write your own riddle-ku here.

Laura, great riddle-ku! I especially love “give me winter wings.” I loved making the answer when I was a kid and again with my own children.
So glad you like it, Gail! I haven’t made a snow angel in so long. This winter! We’re getting a boatload of snow today, in fact, but I’ve been sick for 3 weeks. Soooo…maybe in January :>)
I am sorry you have been sick for so long. We’ve only received 1 inch of snow here & there, except when we came back from being out of town, we had received 3 inches of wet snow. I hope you feel better soon so you can get out in all your snow to make snow angels. Happy Holidays. 🙂

Ah, yes…circling back. It’s the poet’s true vocation. Love the illustration and your riddle-ku together. A perfect match!
Once again, I am not sure that I responded to your post so here it goes again. Thanks for the information on the metaphor contest. I do love your Riddle-Ku, It is so generous that you provide teachers with additional free materials, Laura. Enjoy this week. I hope you are safe where you live.
