Thanks to Penny Parker Klostermann's invitation to participate in her series, “A Great Nephew and a Great Aunt”, I had the pleasure of working with my granddaughter, Ingrid, writing and drawing. We’re visiting Penny this Poetry Friday! You can read about our time here!
I am spending a second week on Captiva Island, reading, writing and just being. My family spent this last week together, and it was a wonderful time, but this week it’s just me. I am not returning to school for the first time in many years, and this week is staff week.
But I am not there. I hope to have a great year: different and new, exciting and quiet, scary and fun. Today, I’m sharing some new words about the ocean. I’m fortunate to be able to experience this mesmerizing sea a bit closer than usual, and I’ve written three haiku to mirror one day this week. Next month I know it will change again, and next season, too. But this is what I’ve noticed one specific daytime, among so many other wonders!
