For National Poetry Month 2021, I’m posting an equation poem each day. Maybe with an image, maybe without. I needed something very accessible and doable this year! Maybe you feel the same way? I’d love for you to join me, and here are several options for sharing your own or your students’ equation poems:
- in the comments below
- on social media with #EquationPoem–and be sure to tag me, please! (@LauraPSalas on Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook)

Here’s today’s equation poem. The Korean War Memorial is so haunting. I think any good memorial needs silence and a pause, a deep breath, to allow time to ponder and appreciate. To feel gratitude for the sacrifice others before me made for freedom. And the sculpting on this memorial–if you haven’t seen it and you get to DC, don’t miss it. The soldiers’ faces and expressions are just amazing.
