A Book Spine Poem

IMG_3481                     A New Song

Dust tracks on a road

An unspoken hunger

The solace of open spaces

Listening to whales

Animal, vegetable, miracle

A new song-

Spotting improbable moments of Grace

Small victories



My daughter, home from college, thought it looked like fun and created this one:

Spinning Inward                                                                      IMG_3482

A child is born

The lonely victory

Their eyes were watching God

Spinning inward


Pathways to the common core

We had a blast but now there are books all over the living room and no one wants to put them away!

    What a fun idea! It will be a great follow up lesson to found poems! Today my class worked on a found poem and loved it. I think they will love this too!
