Happy Poetry Friday! Welcome, everyone! (Wondering what Poetry Friday is? Click here.)
We were scrambling for our form this month, and Tricia suggested anagram poems. She was inspired by Linda Baie’s lovely idea and poem here. As a theme, we picked weather or umbrellas or natural cycles.
I wrote my poem mostly on a flight to Denver for the awesome Denver Children’s Festival of Stories (photos here from my trip).
And here’s a bit of my process. I thought I was done after draft two, because I just didn’t have time to work further on it. But then, as I made my imagepoem above, I tweaked a few more things on the fly. In that final tweaking, I lost one anagram pair. So this poem has four anagram pairs total. Can you spot them?
I’m looking forward to seeing what my Poetry Sisters have come up with–right along with you guys! I have been on a school visit at Bayview Elementary School all week, so I wrote this a couple weeks ago and haven’t been able to participate in the conversation that’s been flying around!
