Of course you know it’s Poetry Month
but do you know that
the wonderful and
mouth-wateringly
delicious Jama Rattigan
has herded poet bloggers
in the Kidlitosphere onto
her site  this month?

Thank you, Jama!

 

(And check out my group blog,
TeachingAuthors.com!
Every Friday when we talk
poetry, poetry, poetry!)

 

I write a poem each day; during Poetry Month 2015 I’m sharing *PPPs 
Welcome to Poetry Month 2015!

Eli and I will be feeding you one PPP per day for Poetry Month this year.  What is a PPP, you ask?  A *Previously Published Poem.  I have so many poems in so many anthologies, books and magazines, Eli thought I should snap a leash on one each day this month and give it a walk around the block.  So that’s what we’re doing this year.  Enjoy!

WITH A SHOUT OF MAGENTA


WITH A SHOUT OF MAGENTA
by April Halprin Wayland

Why are these flowers—
pouring down the hot hills like
lava—called ice plants?

From the NAPPA’s Gold Award Winner for Storytelling recording,  It’s Not My Turn To Look For Grandma And Other Stories (1997)
