I feel like celebrating today after reading Ramona Behnke's SJT post on a children's book, My Mama Had a Dancing Heart.
Is it that Spring is in the air? The sun is returning after soaking the earth with its gentle but hearty rains or is it that I have a window of opportunity to lounge around instead of being immersed in checking out my endless to-do list? I sneak time to read posts from Spiritual Journey Thursday and Poetry Friday writing friends. I plan on reading the read aloud version of the book which can be found on YouTube here. The book talks about celebrating and this made me pause to ponder what can I joyfully celebrate today.
What shall I celebrate
on the morning of a
I pause and see
nature nurturing me
in its sun-cracking,
Little grandgirls giggle,
We love to play!
It's a Springsational day!
Look around you and find reasons to celebrate life!
Have you checked out my Springsations Gallery Padlet here.
I and other poets, slicers, and writers celebrate Spring there.
Another reason to celebrate is that it's Tuesday and time to join Two Writing Teachers' Slice of Life here.
I do love your poems! Favorite lines: spring-popping and pollen-packing. Great pattern and meter, and great to read aloud. And all the motion in your grand-girls poem- so joyful!ReplyDelete
Carol, you find so much to celebrate. The reasons for celebrating are all around us if we take the time to look around and recognize them. I love the title you chose for the poem about your granddaughters. Children seem to be in constant motion. Continue celebrating.
Oh, I love that book! You reminded me it would be a great one to read at this time of year. You did a great job mentoring it with your post here!ReplyDelete
We can always find something to celebrate… Spring and grand girls are two of the best!ReplyDelete
Diane, they are at the top of my list right now. Springsations Gallery Padlet holds many others, your included.Delete
Carol, how fun! Celebration of all the joy! Yes, indeed.ReplyDelete
What a delightful poem--"Let's Celebrate." I love the sound of these two parts and the rhyming in this poem is magical.
Denise, Spring is all of that and more! There is no rain today and some sun now making today a reason for celebrating. Have a great day.Delete
