Happy Poetry Friday! (Wondering what Poetry Friday is? Click here.) I’ve missed you guys the past few weeks! I’m dropping in this week to share my poem from Tabatha Yeatts’ fabulous Imperfect II — poems about perspective: an anthology for middle schoolers. I have now had two poems centered on insecurity and picture day at school. Two poems in books, I mean. I’ve probably written more, as it seems to resonate with me. You can imagine how I loved picture day. Here I am in second grade. I didn’t move on to skin insecurities until later grades–haha!
I’ve really enjoyed seeing so many Poetry Friday friends in the pages of this anthology. Thank you, Tabatha, for your work for this tender age group!
And for lots of wonderful poetry, don’t miss the Poetry Friday Roundup with poet Buffy Silverman–I always love how she celebrates the world and science in her poetry.
