Happy Poetry Friday! (Wondering what Poetry Friday is? Click here.)
Howdy, everyone–thanks for your warm thoughts last week. My sister was briefly out of the hospital but is back in 🙁 The yo-yoing back and forth is wearing her down. Anyway, your kind thoughts here and other social media really touched me and my sisters. And thank you for the birthday wishes, too:>)
This week, I’m sharing a riddle-ku from Lion of the Sky. Isn’t Merce’s menacing pumpkin awesome?
And speaking of Lion of the Sky, I’m tickled pink (or red) that it’s a Vermont Red Clover nominee! Whee! So if you’d like a tiny bit of background on the book, here’s a two-minute video I made for teachers and students.
And for lots of delicious poetry, don’t miss the Poetry Friday Roundup with Jama Rattigan!
