Happy Poetry Friday! Welcome, everyone! (Wondering what Poetry Friday is? Click here.)
Before moving on to my poem this week, I have a question for you. Do you know of one or a few kids ages 4-6 who would like to be in the book trailer for my first fiction picture book? The book comes out Aug. 1, 2020, and I’ll be creating the trailer soon. If you’re interested, check out the details here. Thank you! (Feel free to forward this to teachers or other you think might be able to help.)
So, this month, our Poetry Princess challenge was to look back at one of our previous poems and either revise it (which I often say I’m going to do and then don’t) or write a poem in conversation with it. I decided to revisit my tanka exploring the nature of truth that I shared here. I was never happy with the comparison to a rock that lots of people wouldn’t have any idea what it looked like. In my revision, I went for something a bit more recognizable.
I also did a screen capture of my revision process, which I’m sharing with my Writer in Progress Patreon Group (as soon as I can figure out how to speed it up, which YouTube doesn’t do any more, apparently).
I’m looking forward to seeing what my Poetry Sisters have come up with–right along with you guys!
