Poetry Friday is finally here! If you would like to celebrate poetry, then join the round up at Heidi's My Juicy Little Universe. Thanks for hosting Heidi!
Today, I am sharing a poem about one of my favorite places. I love spending time on the lake just below the ridge. It is so soothing and peaceful. I love to write about all the life that is happening on the lake. Sometimes, I just close my eyes and let my mind wander wherever it will! Spending time in your favorite place can really clear your head of all the busy thoughts of the week so that your mind is open to take on those new ideas that matter to you. I hope you are able to spend some time in your special place this weekend, too!
Listen to my poem-On the Lake
Invitation to Write:
Writers like to write about their favorite places. It can be comforting to think of the places we love. Try closing your eyes right now and picturing the places that you feel most at home. Think about what makes each place soothing to your mind and spirit. Now open your eyes and write!
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.
