Recycling - My Poem Writing Year #164

This is the first poem in a new week of semi-themed poems, but I am not going to tell you the theme until Monday!

This week's theme is NOT "lice" even though this is the second poem I have written about lice.  My first lice poem will appear in Lee Bennett Hopkins' forthcoming book, NASTY BUGS, later this year. In addition, I wrote an essay about lice which you can find in the WBFO column on the right.  It seems that the topic of "lice" is a life-topic for me.  Bummer.

  1. Now there's a to do list I can go for. Thanks, Amy! And interesting about rocks. My husband's been sketching some and hoping these rock sketches would inspire poems, so I rushed over here when I saw the subject. Hmm, should I write on the poems before he draws? musing.

  2. Jeannine, Oh, I hope that you post some of your husband's rock sketches along with any poems they inspire. How neat that he is doing this and hoping to inspire you...I love that. A.
