Day 7 of 31 #SOL16

I've been so excited to come across a few slices of poetry these past few days. It reminded me that it has been a while since I wrote much poetry. There was a time when I was writing a poem or two a day. I went to visit my poetry blog to remind myself what once was there remains inside me I just need to tap into it.
Writing evolves and changes. Focus evolves and changes. I've had opportunities come along that have changed me as a writer. People have come into my life and changed me as a writer. A lot of different students have come into my life and changed me as a teacher/writer.
When I first began writing again I was exploring all kinds of genres and writing the good, bad, and the ugly. It's fun to look back on some of my first blog posts to see where I "began." I'm sure the poet inside of me will emerge a bit during the month of March. At least, I hope so.


  1. I'm doing a poetry unit with my class right now! I am going to read aloud Sharon Creech's Love that Dog and just today I printed out the poems she references in the book. I was thinking of trying the "so much depends" structure with the kids and of course trying it out myself! I love poetry but often feel it's not the genre where my writing shines. I look forward to reading your poems!

  2. Oh I love how we grow and change as writers, teachers and learners. I am sure new verses will emerge as you write your way through March!

  3. I hope you write some poems this month too! Poetry is not my go-to genre, but I get more inspired to try it after reading the poetry of others.

  4. I've been hoping to see a bit of poetry land in your screen space! Looking forward to it! :)

  5. Poetry is my current goal. I love it but I'm afraid of it. Crazy. Getting bolder during this month though. I think the push to write every day makes me more comfortable being uncomfortable. If that makes any sense!!

  6. You have taught me not to be afraid of poetry! I'm still not completely comfortable but I do give it a try every now and then. I can't wait to hear your new poems in the future. You are right people I encounter in life help me evolve my writing skills. Thanks!
