It was a wonderful April Poetry Month. So many wrote and invited others to write. I'm fearful of leaving someone out if I try to list all the April projects, but I read many, many poems and words about poems this past month. I needed an "April break" so I could keep up! Thank you everyone!
One of the projects is one that has been dear to Jone MacCulloch (Deo Writer) for several years, and I was a lucky recipient of one of the Poetry Project poems created by students at her school. Thanks to Michael C. for the lovely reminder of the beauty and mystery of snow leopards. Wouldn't it be awesome to really see one? Enlarge the picture to see that "tiny" leopard sketch.
Yesterday, today and tomorrow, big things are happening in the twitter and blogging world, a push to let the world know that we need more diversity in children's lit, #WeNeedDiverseBooks is the hashtag, and the information about it can be found at Gathering Books, from Myra who is passing it along from someone else, and then that someone from someone. The chain is growing... Because the latest theme on the Gathering Books blog is Rainbow Colors of Diversity, Voices of the Silenced, it's fun to highlight this from them.
And spring is very long in coming this year. We've had the usual early blooms but there is still a world of buds ready to open anytime. Maybe this next week; there are much warmer temperatures in our future! I've been contemplating all that's happening behind the scenes!
Behind The Scenes
and water streams,
Seed sends letter
of flower abilities.
No one knows
the bloom better.
