I am away from my desk but wanted to pop in with a fun summer something from earlier this week:
|little sis and Paul|
You can read the poem -- which I wrote after my little sister experienced some fear of swimming in the lake... and for Rebecca Herzog, as part of Summer Poem Swap, because Becky likes horror/creepy lit, and this was the best I could do. :) --
and see pics of the activities and art and poetry the kids and Paige created at the ALSC blog.
AND... I will leave you with a lake pic from our son's visit earlier this week:
|Eric's sunset swim|
What a gorgeous sunset. I agree. This picture is so peaceful. It looks like your lake is a wonderful place to be. Now, I'm off to read your poem! xoReplyDelete
How are we supposed to imagine floating peacefully in that lake after reading your horror poem?!?! :-)ReplyDelete
Love your poem swap for Rebecca, Irene, especially theReplyDelete
"Not a snaketurtlepirhanasharkALLIGATOR"
What a wonderfully scary critter! I enjoyed seeing what Paige Bentley-Flannery did with her budding poets and your poem!
And, thanks for all these fun lake pics too.
I love your spooky poem, but now you've gone and ruined it with this peaceful image, lol. How can I believe in all those baddies in a lake like that?ReplyDelete
You've captured so many facets of lakes with your poem and photos. No offense, but I'm going to focus on the serene drifting sunset lake photo rather than your creepy what's-in-the-water-below-me lake poem as I head to a lake this week!ReplyDelete
summerlake simmerlake summerscare! I'm with Molly--the wide slow sunset drift please!ReplyDelete
What Mary Lee said...gorgeous picture!ReplyDelete
Having spent many summers at a lake in Maine NOT swimming, I can relate to your sister's fear. I think Eric has the right idea! Thank you for sharing!ReplyDelete
Sweeeeeeeet....little sisters, summer, poetry swapping. Sigh. I think this has been a lovely little visit.ReplyDelete
The creepiest lakes have seaweed growing up, tickling, tickling, twining...ReplyDelete
