After an inspiring night of sweet as honey conversation with my poet friends and #NYEDChat colleagues, I sit still to relax. One half-hour of quick conversation has my head spinning and my heart racing. My thoughts swirl as I continue to #ThinkPoetry. With energy still high, I recall tweet after tweet, question, comment, response, fingers pounding keys at such a fast pace that I could not keep up. Is this not the process of moderating, keeping an even keel, making sure positivity floats through the conversation, and then, amidst guided talk, draw the chat to a sweet ending?
Through one direct message, I was able to bring together this amazing group of poetry friends to share the power of poetry at #NYEDChat. Many thanks to each and every one of them for helping me send out #poetrylove.
Thank you to my friend, Dr. Mary Howard for helping me understand how to archive #NYEDChat with the Wakelet app. Click here or use the QR code below to view the transcript.
Let my words soar right over to Two Writing Teachers for the Tuesday Slice of Life.
Beautiful, Carol!! I love your approach of using color to inspire poetry. I have always wanted to write poetry, but am terrified of it. I am inspired, though, to try this with my son :-)ReplyDelete
Color always adds to to any occasion but paint chip poetry adds a new layer to my enthusiasm for writing. Don't be terrified by poetry. Think of it in this way: Everyone has a voice. Find your voice inside and let it soar by writing your feelings in free verse. Do try it with your son and let me know how it is.Delete
I just followed you on Twitter but see that you are not active. Hopefully, we will catch up on Two Writing Teachers.Delete
April went by whoosh. You have poems to keep memory of this April. I like your final thought: polish your words and let them soar.ReplyDelete
On my final thought: I polish until every speck shines but there is always something that can be improved upon. I had fun playing with poetry this month and will continue into May that is upon us today-"whoosh" is right. I'm hosting Spiritual Journey First Thursday tomorrow so I'm polishing my poem post tonight.Delete
Sorry I missed last night's chat. So many of my favorite poets were there. How do I access the chat on Wakelet? Your poem is a confectionary delight! See you tomorrow, Carol!ReplyDelete
Ramona, I am sorry that I did not attach the link. I tweeted it out but should have placed it here also. Thanks for reminding me to link up. I think I am ready for SJ1stT and may add it late tonight since I have a professional development program to run in one of the districts tomorrow.Delete
