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!

Eli thinking deep, poetic thoughts…

SANTA FE, NEW MEXICO


SANTA FE, NEW MEXICO
by April Halprin Wayland

up dusty red Canyon Road
in and out of art galleries
ducking out of the heat

into cool rooms filled with
pueblo paintings,
buffalo sculptures,
wrought iron Indians,

out again into the clear day
to see surprising piles of clouds,
melting, moving
mounds of white ice cream

look what I have found
out here
in this gallery.
