Happy Poetry Friday! It's great to be back in the round up this week! For more poetry bliss, be sure to visit Christie's space, Wondering and Wandering.
I'm taking some much needed time this week to return to my writing life. While it brings me joy to be continuing to provide learning at home to my students and my own children, I am also reminded of the importance of taking care of myself. I think that is so crucial for all of us to do for ourselves and for others. Taking time to write or to do the thing you love is necessary right now more than ever. Whatever your heart is calling you to do, I wish you hope and courage to make the time to do it, for you.
Listen to my poem-
Invitation to Write:
Writing has the power to heal. It can provide us with an outlet to express ourselves in ways we never imagined. I invite you to set aside some time for you. Do the thing that makes your heart happy and your hope soar. Be present in the experience. Take it all in. Grab your favorite writing tools and write whatever comes.
Welcome! I'm Kiesha Shepard, and I have a love for writing and the teaching of writing. Whispers From the Ridge is a place where I can share my words and ideas for teaching writing. It's also a place for you to find inspiration for writing the words inside of you. I invite you into my world of writing as I capture the whispers from the ridge.
