Window Star by Hope
Photo by Amy LV
Students - this poem came from plain old looking around. I was sitting in our living room, unsure of what to write about, when my eyes lit on the window star you see above. Instantly I started thinking about starfish, and right away I wanted to write about them.
This poem is similar to "Skies and Seas," a poem I wrote in back December. One of the neatest benefits of writing every day is that I am noticing which patterns, topics, and themes keep emerging.
Ed Young's book, I WISH I WERE A BUTTERFLY, has always been a favorite, and surely the theme has sunk into my bones...for here it is in today's poem!
