As August prepares to move gracefully
it's summer days can refresh friendships
and build yet another memory to
last throughout September.
The tranquil summer scene below and Albert Garcia's
thoughtful look at an August morning inspired me to compose my own poem to
celebrate an afternoon of sun-drenched, delightful moments. The use of a mentor text and a photograph transformed into a digital creation prompted creative flow and word weaving in the silence of
an August night.
Please visit Sylvia Vardell's site, Poetry for Children, for this week's Poetry Friday Round-Up. I was fortunate to meet Sylvia and Janet Wong at ILA 15 this year and spend a bit of time conversing with them.
Reminder: I am collecting digitalized inspirations this weekend for an August 31, 2015 deadline to submit your summer creation for Summer Splashings. When sending photographs please make sure that the digitalized inspirations is no larger than 6 x 6.5. Thank you to those who have contributed an those thinking about it.
