Day Six of the Two Writing Teachers Slice of Life Challenge.
I'm also slicing with my classroom at Linda & Jonathan's Class Blog.
Today it's also Poetry Friday. Robyn Campbell is hosting Poetry Friday today, sharing a few different roads we might take! See all the posts at her blog HERE.
Carol Varsalona has been collecting poems for what she calls her galleries, and some of us have shared with her and she, in turn, shares a beautiful collection online each season. Carol blogs at Beyond Literacy Link and has had her own large share of winter lately. She is kind when she asks for poems, but she does "nudge", so for the past months I've been on the lookout for "winter". We had unusually warm days early this year, and then at the end of February, set a record for the most snow in that month ever. Strange weather, and so I continued to try to find something to write. Finally, one day, looking out the window, ready to go clean off my car (I don't have a garage.) there it was, and here is my poem and the inspiration.
Sunshine After Snow
white snow snakes
bask on tree branches
