Happy Poetry Friday! Welcome to the ridge. Thanks for visiting, and for more of the round-up, stop over at Carol's space HERE.
This week I am sharing a poem about friendship. I think friendships are such a gift to our hearts and our words. It brings me joy to have friends who inspire me and help me grow. My friends are so important to me that I chose friendship as my #oneword for 2018. Friends invite us to think and dream. Friendships give us the promise of new hope and the courage to stretch ourselves. This poem is written for all of you, my friends!
Invitation to Write:
Writers lean on friends for support and inspiration all the time. Our friends can help us find our voice when it has grown quiet. Think of a friend who gives your voice wings to let your words fly. What are some of the ways your friends support you and inspire you? Make a list in your notebook. Try leaning on the ideas from your list to write a friendship poem of your own. Be sure to share it with a special friend if you do!
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.
