Thank you, Poetry Friday friends for helping me celebrate the launch of my new book On a Snow-Melting Day this month! Many of you wrote reviews and shared blog posts, which I greatly appreciated. Thanks to Molly, Margaret, Carol, Linda, Mary Lee and Jama–click on their names if you’d like to read their posts. And many other Poetry Friday friends posted reviews on GoodReads.
Some non-Poetry Friday folks also shared reviews. Raven and Maria interviewed me and wrote lovely posts. Some blog posts offered ideas for using On a Snow-Melting Day in the classroom: Two Writing Teachers, Archimedes Notebook, and LitLinks.
And of course, there’s Today’s Little Ditty where Michelle has hosted a month-long celebration. I’m thankful to all who wrote a poem for the TLD challenge. It occurred to me today that I should try my own challenge. (Note to self: if there’s a next time, try the challenge out before asking anyone else to do it!)
Winter has returned this week, and the hound and I took a cold word-collecting walk to gather inspiration. I possibly got overly-hyphenated when I came inside to warm myself and write:
worn, rustling leaves
Glaciers in claws,
Nosing the door
snooze-ball once more.
Happy Poetry Friday! Carol has the roundup of today’s posts at The Blog With the Shockingly Clever Title.
