Y’all might know that I love thunderstorms and rain. Today for National Poetry Month, I’m sharing one more rain sticky note poem (I shared two earlier this week here and here) AND a cover reveal! I have a picture book coming out in spring of 2023, and Elly MacKay is creating the absolutely stunning art for it. Here’s the gorgeous cover, which I saw for the first time last Friday, and I haven’t stopped smiling about it since.
And this is my final poem from the thunderstorm last week. It’s a deeper wisdom poem. You can read about this form here and see a rule-following one that I wrote here. In this one, I didn’t really follow the rules :>)
Thanks for reading, and happy National Poetry Month! And if you ended up here by chance, fantastic! Here are a few links you might find helpful.
