Happy Poetry Friday! (Wondering what Poetry Friday is? Click here.)
I wasn’t planning to post this week as I’ve been on school visits, and also because of my commenting debacle last week. Fingers crossed for this week!
But the awesome poetry workshop kids at Hassan Elementary reminded me that playing with words is the whole point. So I jotted up this first draft to share. I started reading a mystery tonight set in an Irish village, and the plot involves a fairy ring. So…
Dirty, earthy mushrooms
spin into a circle
stitched with silver thread
through the forest’s ferny floor
child of geometry and magic,
bringer of luck
shelterer of hidden things
