Poetry Friday Pinning and Snow Chalking

            TeachingYoungWriters. Anastasia Suen is hosting today on Pinterest. Head over to see the fabulous board!  Thanks for doing this, Anastasia, very fun!
Lots going on for Poetry Friday.  It's the end of the month, so time for Chalk-a-bration with Betsy Hubbard at TeachingYoungWriters.

           And I want to say a public thank you to Laura Shovan, Author Amok, for a wonderful month of Pantone Poetry for her birthday celebration. I didn't add my words today, but have written for nearly every day this month.  It's been a pleasure and a challenge.  Thanks much, Laura!

            For the past few chalk-a-brations, it's either been too cold or snowy to chalk on the sidewalk, so I've "chalked" for the tradition, but become a little creative as to where I've done it. Hopefully more spring poems will bring spring faster. I imagine there will be some today. I've already read one!

  1. We are waking up to a very cold day in Michigan again making chalking VERY (BRrr) difficult too. I love your improvised chalk on the walkway poem. You're so smart I too can't wait for some spring chalk!

    1. It's the only way to think, Jama! Something has to happen, and why not with poetry! Ha! Our snowiest month is usually March, & here it comes! Thanks!

  5. I think we have the U.S. covered from one end to the other with PFers, so maybe if we all wish for spring simultaneously...

  9. You are SO clever, Linda! I'm sending you warm vibes and chalk worthy temperatures - we have some to spare here in the desert. Love that little leaf amongst the snow. = )

    1. I think when I write these shorter poems, Bridget I think you are a huge influence. I always love how you can get so much out of so few words. Thanks!
