Life on the Deckle Edge

POETRY MONTH - Mini Poem Movie "I turn" from The Best of Today's Little Ditty, 2014-15; Don't Say I Didn't Warn You...


Greetings, Poetry Lovers!  Don't say I didn't warn you about today's poem... 


It's from THE BEST OF TODAY'S LITTLE DITTY 2014-15, compiled by the fabulous Michelle Heidenrich Barnes.  Be sure to play the video all the way through, as it's... well - you'll have to see for yourself. But be careful. (I might have been slightly under the influence of the "Getty Challenges" - but no actual art was harmed during the making of this video!)


Click here for the poem, and while you're there, check out the other mini movies I've been posting every weekday for Poetry Month.  (After today's, you might be glad we've just about run out of month.) ;0)

POETRY MONTH - Mini poem videos continue with "Blank"...


Greetings, Poetry Lovers!  Thanks for all the kind comments and shares about my mini-poem-videos project, I PAUSE FOR POEMS, via YouTube.  I'm glad teachers are finding useful!  Today's poem is in response to a Today's Little Ditty challenge posed by Douglas Florian in 2016 - to write a poem about nothing. Mine is called "Blank." ;0)  Thanks to Michelle Heidenrich Barnes for all her Ditty magic. 


I'll continue sharing poems for kids on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays, and haiku suitable for kids on Tuesdays and Thursdays.  


Here is today's poem, and here is my YouTube Channel


Stay safe, and have a poetry-filled Monday.
