Life on the Deckle Edge

POETRY MONTH - Mini poem Movie: "lingering afternoon" Haiku

Greetings, Poetry Lovers!  My National Poetry Month project continues with haiku today - a short poem long on lovely sounds from our feathered friends.  (On Tuesdays and Thursdays, I share a mini poem movie with one of my published haiku suitable for kids, and on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays, it's one of my published poems for kids.)

 

Today's offering is feather-friendly. ;0)

 

Click here to hear today's haiku (& see the amazing photo my daughter, Morgan, took on Wednesday and let me borrow!), or click  here to peruse my YouTube Channel.  Thanks for coming along!

POETRY MONTH - I Pause for Haiku today with "June heat"....

 

Greetings, Poetry Lovers! I PAUSE FOR HAIKU today with "June heat" from ACORN #30 (Spring 2013).

 

This one is especially for my stepdad, Jack, who called me this week to talk about the catbird in their Florida yard!  (Click the picture to hear the poem.)

 

Do you have a favorite bird?  Maybe you can write a poem about it, even one as short as a haiku.

 

Moongazing is a popular traditional subject for haiku, and tonight will be a good night to do it - it's a Full Pink Supermoon.  Click here for more info, and enjoy the great and small wonders all around.

Poetry Month - I Pause for Haiku - "between"

 

Greetings, Poetry Lovers!  

 

My National Poetry Month project continues with "I Pause for Poems" and "I Pause for Haiku" mini original poem movies.  Today I'm reading a haiku which originally appeared in bottle rockets, #41, August 2019.  The photo with the text, and the sound effects accompanying it, came from our back yard.  You'll see. ;0) 

 

Click here for the link, and here for my YouTube channel. Each Monday, Wednesday, and Friday in April, I'll add a poem for kids.  Each Tuesday and Thursday this month, I'll add a haiku.

 

For all kinds of National Poetry Month project magic, visit the lovely Jama who has rounded up poetic wonders around the Kidlitosphere at Jama's Alphabet Soup.
