Three cheers for Poetry Friday! There is so much excitement in the air with all the fun fall activities happening each week! You can find out more about what's happening in our Poetry Friday community this week too by waltzing over to TeacherDance where Linda is hosting the round-up. Thanks for hosting, Linda!
My bluebird friends have returned! I enjoy their company so much throughout the spring, but they seem to go away for awhile during the summer. Now they are back, sitting on the wire and hunting for worms. Soon they will begin scouting out the tiny wooden houses I have posted along the fence line. They will grace my backyard all winter long with their brilliant blue coats. They are so beautiful to me that I just had to write a poem in their honor.
Invitation to Write:
Sometimes we write about things that we are thankful for. Our love for the special people and things in our life often encourages us to express our gratitude to them. Spend some time today thinking about the things you are most grateful for. You might jot down a list or maybe you'll be inspired to write a poem to honor them like I did!
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.
