For Poetry Friday today, I’m sharing a poem from Riddle-ku: Haiku for Very Close Reading, part of my 30 Painless Classroom Poems series. Next week, Tuesday, Sep. 22 — Thursday, Sep. 24, the Kindle edition of Riddle-ku will be on sale for 99 cents. If you do purchase it, I’d be very grateful for your honest review on Amazon when you finish it.
The answer, as you probably guessed from the background image, is TREES! This poem was inspired by birch trees along the North Shore (of Lake Superior) here in Minnesota. I love birch trees:>)
Dittymaster Michelle Heidenrich Barnes at This Little Ditty has the Poetry Friday Roundup and a wonderful original poem up today about a memorable childhood moment. Enjoy!
