National Poetry Month is over, and I had so much fun with riddle-ku! Thank you for all of you who stopped by to read, comment, or share these poems with kids. I really appreciate it!
Wake up your poetry brains with 15 Words or Less (guidelines here)!
When I was in Las Vegas recently for a children’s literature conference (pics to come), Randy and I went to a mall where there were a number of pillars like this, each with a different word in many languages, like Courage, Love, Justice, etc. Here are?3 things this photo makes me think of:
1)?children in refugee camps
2)?how important it is to display what we believe in
3) a baby bird learning to fly
And here’s my?first draft.
Pine-needled floor spins away
Small ball of bone and feather teeters–
tastes soaring sweetness?
