Hello and Happy Poetry Friday! Be sure and visit Jama's Alphabet Soup for what I am sure will be a delectable Roundup!
I've had so much fun this week reading nonets from Read Aloud Revival kids, after a video lesson I presented. So. Many. FABULOUS. Poems! Truly, nonets are such a great place for young poets to start.
AND... it's my pleasure to be presenting interactive and transformative poetry today alongside Vikram Madan and Laura Purdie Salas for Fay B. Kaigler Children's Book Festival. I love National Poetry Month!
For my ARTSPEAK: Four Seasons offering, I've got a van Gogh-inspired haiku for you! Funny thing: pretty much every time I type "almond blossoms," I first accidentally type "almost blossoms." :)
It happened so often when working on this poem and creating the post that I've just written "almost blossoms" in my writing notebook to use as a writing prompt later. :) Thanks so much for reading.
