If you haven't checked out Carol's Summer Serenity Gallery, be sure to stop by for a lingering taste of summer. This was a wonderfully creative endeavor by Carol. All I did was submit my poem "Stones" with a photo, and Carol did the rest.
Today I share a favorite poem "What I Learned From My Mother" by Julia Kasdorf. And since I can't be there in person to provide a chocolate cake and a hug to those I love who are suffering, I offer my love and prayers that "... Someone who's farther along the uphill path..." can provide the solace they seek.
Amy at Poetry Farm is hosting Poetry Friday this week. Be sure to share her site with students and parents. I love that Amy records her poems and speaks directly to the students in her posts. Head over for this week's round-up of poetry love at The Poem Farm.
