Tomorrow is the first day of National Poetry Month. Despite the shift in my circumstances this year, I am going to try to participate in the poem-a-day process again. After all, I really believe that part of teaching writing well is letting the students see their teachers working at the writing craft themselves. As usual, I will be following Robert Lee Brewer’s prompts for the month.
1. The delight of a small person having a birthday
2. All those crocus: one golden flower among a field of violet
3. Striving, how we learn by striving
4. Generations: being in the middle at the moment
5. Rising to the occasion (perhaps this is a repeat of #3, but it’s actually a hope as well as a gratitude at the moment, so it bears repeating)
May we walk in Beauty!
