I haven't been participating in Poetry Thursday because I haven't been in a poetic state of mind. Most of my old poems have already been posted on past PTs and I can't seem to come up with anything new. Yesterday, I came up with an idea that I hope will remedy that.
Summer is the time when the kids explore new books. During the school year, they have so much assigned reading that they don't get a chance to read for fun. Since I am requesting books from the library on a weekly basis, I thought I could add some poetry to the stack. I could focus on a different author every week. Either I will be inspired to write some new poetry, or I could write about that week's poet.
Although I haven't made a list of authors yet, I am excited about this project. If you would like to suggest your favorite author, leave me a comment.
