It’s Poetry Friday! Chelanne at Books4Learning is hosting! Today I have a haiku inspired by a visit to the university library . . . though this photo is not of our library. I hope your weekend includes some relaxing “reading”!
It’s Poetry Friday! Tara is hosting at A Teaching Life. Thanks again to everyone who stopped here — sometimes more than once! — to share your links and your thoughts on creativity. You are welcome to see what others have posted and add to the conversation here. Related to the “spurts” or “butt-in-chair” thread, I […]

It’s Poetry Friday! Buffy Silverman and her driftwood “Menorah Man” welcome us at her blog. Today I’m rushing to share a poem I wrote this summer during my haiku study.
