Thank you, Wallowers...
And that, my friends, was Wallow in Wonder, my 2016 National Poetry Month Project.
It was wonderful (smile) to write poems all month from the daily Wonders at Wonderopolis. As I did with my Dictionary Hike in 2012, I looked to surprise myself with new inspiration daily. This year, such inspiration showed up in my inbox each morning. I printed out every day's Wonderopolis Wonder, read, thought, wrote, rewrote, recorded, and made paintings inspired by each one.
Here are all thirty poems, including four sonnets, a few free verse, and a smattering of everything else!
Wallow in Wonder 2016
Thank you once more for joining me on this thirty day journey. It has been a pleasure to wonder and wallow with you all. Here is a post that shows the power of connection, one class inspired by another, at Mandy Robek's Enjoy and Embrace Learning. How fortunate we all are to have each other.
And now...it's May, and time to announce this week's giveaway winner!
Congratulations to Carol Varsalona, winner of this week's giveaway of A WRITING KIND OF DAY by Ralph Fletcher. Carol, please send your snail mail address to amy at amylv dot com, and I will send your book to you.
