Poetry Friday -- Sky Poem




Poem for the Golden Sky I See Outlining a Web of Winter-Bare Trees and Contrasting the Blue-White Snow-Topped Roofs When I Open My Eyes All Warm and Drowsy After a Nap on a Day Proclaimed to be Too Cold to go to School

I love you.

  3. When there is a snow (cold)day, words arrive at just the right moment, like these beauties, Mary Lee! I'm starting more poetry writing next week with my students & will share that poetry can look many different ways.

  5. I love the title and the poem, and how the weight of the two is heavier above (in the sky direction). I can so relate to enjoying that kind of view.

  6. What a gorgeous photo! No wonder inspiration hit immediately. Love how the "poem" is the title.

  7. Lovely, Mary Lee! I have always wanted to write a poem with a title longer than the poem itself. :-)
