Happy Poetry Friday! In person today, I’m sharing poetry and picture books with students at two Sheboygan, WI-area schools–fun! Tomorrow, I’ll be presenting at the Sheboygan Children’s Book Festival. If you are going, I hope you’ll find me and say hi!
I’m sharing a riddle-ku today:
spins upside down: I’m singing
the room full of breeze
Answer: Ceiling Fan
A Note from the Poet:
Most haiku don’t have a sing-song rhythm (da-DUM, da-DUM, etc.). But since a ceiling fan has a steady beat, I had fun trying to make this haiku have a beat, a rhythm.
That’s from my just-out book (Kindle and paperback) Riddle-ku: Haiku for Very Close Reading.
