Since my hand is in a cast, I've been reduced to one hand typing and this encourages me to write really short poems. Hence the haiku.
dancing in moonlight
silver steps in the garden--
a snail creeps along.
And if you think typing is hard, you should try controling a paint brush with your non-dominant hand. But I'm still plugging along. For your poetry challenge for today can you try writing you own haiku about something from nature that has 8--like a spider, an octopus, or even an elephant. (RATS! I made a mistake, elephants only have six sets of teeth.) Did you know that elephants have 6 sets of teeth in their life times? Have fun writing and you may leave your haiku in the comments below if you'd like to share your creation.
The Poetry Friday Round Up is hosted by Katya Czaja on her blog Read. Write. Repeat. You can find links to lots more poetry for children here. Thanks for hosting us at your poetry party, Katya.
Today I'm making a list of eight great things in my life.
