Welcome to Day 29 of Wallow in Wonder!
For my 2016 National Poetry Month project, I will celebrate learning and writing from learning, writing poems from each daily Wonder at Wonderopolis. As I did with my Dictionary Hike in 2012, I am looking to surprise myself with new inspiration daily. This year, such inspiration will show up in my inbox each morning. I will print it and carry each Wonderopolis Wonder around all day...and in the afternoon or evening, I will write and post the poem for the next day.
I invite anyone who wishes to take this challenge too. Just read today's wonder over at Wonderopolis, and write a poem inspired by it for tomorrow. Share it tomorrow at your own site, and if you wish to link in my comments for others to find (or share your poem there), please feel free to do so tomorrow, the day after the Wonder is published at Wonderopolis. If you would like to share any ways you have used Wallow in Wonder or your own site (safe for children only please), please feel free to do so in the comments.
My April Poems Thus Far
April 27 - If We Were Whales - a poem inspired by Wonder #1676
And now for Day 29!
Pocket of Blue
by Amy LV
Students - This is the shortest poem of my Wallow in Wonder series. I am not sure why, but thinking about rain and showers just placed this picture in my head. I liked the first line and then played for quite a while to get the second.
This is simply a couplet - one pair of rhyming lines - and it sketches simply one image. Sometimes writing can be very spare. Feel free to play with many words...and very few. You will learn different things as you experiment with various styles.
I am currently holding two Poetry Month giveaways...both ending tomorrow, April 30!
It has been an absolute pleasure this week to host teacher Emily Callahan and her students from Kansas City here to The Poem Farm. To learn about Popcorn and Poetry and to enter a giveaway for a Ralph Fletcher book...visit HERE.
Lucky me to have Stefanie Cole and her students from Ontario, Canada at Sharing Our Notebooks all month. This is a fantastic post full of notebook inspiration, a video clip, and a great book giveaway from Stefanie. Please check it out, and leave a comment over there to be entered into a giveaway for a Lynda Barry book.
Buffy is hosting today's Poetry Friday roundup over at Buffy's Blog. Hop over to her place to her a wooing toad and to see all of this week's poetic offerings.
Happy Day 29 of National Poetry Month 2016!
