Good Poetry Friday to you,
Today is the last day of school for this Teacher Librarian. And...
Friday is not really an ending but more of a rest stop before continuing on this journey in library. I really needed this rest stop to shake out my limbs. Of course, I'll play a little too...my focus for this year of writing.
This past week, a social media post from poet Jeanine Atkins caught my eye.

Isn't Jeanine's invitation to reflect simply wonderful? Her simple question gave me some lovely writing moments this week and I am grateful.
Her question took me to some reading too. This month's featured poet at The Poetry Foundation is a colleague of Jeanine and also a favorite poet of mine. She writes about an early wonder in this poem.
I was struck at how precious a young person's wonder is to protect. This summer I will refresh my energy for that task.
Our friend Keisha is hosting this week's poetry round-up at Whispers from the Ridge. I love Keisha's reminders of the spiritual elements of poetry and invitations to respond to wonder. I often write in response to a visit to Keisha's Ridge. I hope you will too.
