at A Day In The Life
Hard to believe it's already been a week since the final SOLC, and some of us are still writing every day. Also, many Poetry Friday bloggers are beginning challenges for the month, and others offer invitations to write along with them. I may join them sometimes during the month, but my goal is to work hard to write haiku and haiku-related poetry this month. See my latest below.
I'm also happy that some of us are sharing on twitter with the hashtag #DigiPoetry, created by Margaret Simon, of Reflections on The Teche.You're welcome to join us. Find the many Poetry Month offerings rounded up by Jama Rattigan at Jama's Alphabet Soup. If you want to see some lovely poetry, go to Jama's post to see everyone's plans.
Today, I'm also visiting Michelle Heidenrich Barnes at Today's Little Ditty with a clerihew, her guest host, Kwame Alexander's April poetry challenge. And my poem is the first one this month! If you want to see Kwame's interview and all about the challenge, look here. You should try it! And if you haven't read this year's Newbery winner The Crossover by Kwame, find it and read it! It's wonderful.
I'm back from break, the week has started our long slide down to the end of the year, and many kinds of projects are happening, including creative writing and poetry groups along with celebrating the many students who also wrote every day for SOLC. Only a few missed a few days. I'm very proud of them.
In the midst of the beautiful spring break weather last week, we had snow Thursday night, hence this latest haiku.
snow shadows again
blossoms tighten their hold--
