I'm away from my desk today. Responses from me this week will be slow...but I'll get to them.
A lovely poet from Laura Shovan's 9th annual February Poetry Project shared a call for poems for an anthology about octopuses. I want to send a poem. But, I don't know much about octopuses or other cephalopods. One of my favorite websites, The Smithsonian Institution, was a help to get started:
What a neat document to find poetry in! I fished (haha) through lines of text for phrases in 5 and 7 syllables lengths. From those lines, I found some haiku. And, I was able to form questions that led me to more information in other places. Fun!
|haiku found from the article posted above...with some help from the colored pencils college daughter left behind for me-|
Do you want to find out more about submitting to the octopus and other cephalopod anthology? Here is the link for more information. Happy writing!
See a new poem on padlet.
