Hello and Happy Poetry Friday! Be sure and visit Sarah Grace Tuttle for Roundup.
The header is actually wishful thinking...but I am en route (driving!) to Highlights, where Charles Waters and I are leading a retreat on Poetry for Kids: A World of Publishing Possibilities. We're excited to share this time with other passionate poetry peeps!
Earlier this week I posted about ghosts of AFRICAN TOWN over at Smack Dab in the Middle. Read the poem here.
And here's my latest ArtSpeak: Animals poem. Yep, another Picasso-inspired haiku! (The 10th, actually. I just counted. :) Thanks so much for reading.
on dark autumn morn
rooster will not be silenced
the sound of sunshine
- Irene Latham
p.s. Whatever's happening in the world, however dark the day...we can all be roosters! xo
