Little Bit of Green

Happy Poetry Friday,

I'm away at a Librarian's conference, learning lots from my friends.   

The previous sentence was written a day ago. Ah, the best laid plans have been set aside in favor of keeping COVID 19 away. Now, two kiddos have extended spring breaks from college and two HS kiddos are looking at at least a day of closing to as school districts in our area sort out distance learning plans. And, my conference has been cancelled. 

Here's a bit of green for the coming holiday! I find paper-crafting very soothing.

A little bit of green

and a little bit of fun

will keep you 
from being pinched
by a leprechaun

  1. Oh, I love your repurposed shamrocks dancing on the page. Sorry about your conference. Was this the one with Sarah Albee? Our regional SCBWI conference was cancelled. Our schools are still in session, but I feel it's only a matter of time...
    Be sure to sign up for the progressive poem. https://reflectionsontheteche.com/2020/03/13/kidlitosphere-progressive-poem-sign-up/

  4. Hi, Linda. It's a good time to have crafts on hand -- and to make poems with art. Same here -- SCBWI conference for this weekend has been cancelled.

  7. You are inspiring, Linda. I hope to find time to do some art tomorrow. And since our St. Pat's Day parades are all gone, this is a perfect post, your own poetry parade. Sorry for all your cancellations!

  9. So sorry that your conference was cancelled. It seems like that is happening to so many folks! But I love that you took advantage of the extra time to make some art. It's lovely! I want to make some art during the next three weeks too!

  10. Linda, there are so many cancellations that make my head spin. We had to cancel our literacy conference on Long Island after a long 4 days of deliberation. Ralph Fletcher and Torrey Maldonado were keynoting. If all goes well with the pandemic we can have the conference on May 29th but that is a long shot. Thanks for bringing us a bit of Irish green to spark our days. My daughter said that the schools around her are closed and she is expecting my daughter's day care school to close also.

  11. Maybe in these coming "days off" you can do some collaging with your own kiddos? As of today all the branches of our county library system are closed in addition to the schools. My daughter's school was going to have them go back just two days this week (mostly so that they could pick up computers, work, art supplies in the case of my daughter, to do while at home, but then the state stepped in and said nope. You must close now even if you're unprepared. Way to ramp up the problem, folks.
