Hello and Happy Poetry Friday! Be sure to visit Linda at TeacherDance for Roundup.
Holy September, it's football season. That's a pretty big deal 'round these parts! On Friday nights we really enjoy supporting our local team—a small 1A K-12 school with a stadium perched atop gorgeous Straight Mountain. Lupita's ice cream truck is usually there, too, which is always a treat.
I'm continuing my ArtSpeak: Animals Picasso mini-series with an owl! Owls are one of those subjects well covered by poets, so it feels like quite a challenge to write something fresh about them...but how could I NOT tackle it, when Picasso's art is so dang adorable?! Thanks so much for reading.
the mystery is
how owl so round and ruffled
learned to drink moonlight

p.s. Here's a site featuring 51 owl poems, some familiar, some new to me. Enjoy!
