Today I join my fellow bloggers in "serving up a slice"
to the Slice of Life (SOL) community.
Thanks to Stacey, Tara, Betsy, Dana, Beth, and Anna
for hosting this meeting place each Tuesday
and for nurturing our writing lives.
I'm also sharing my narrative poem at Poetry Friday.
Robyn Campbell is hosting this week's poetry round-up.
Be sure to stop by for a taste of poetry love.
Remember the trembling feeling in the pit of your stomach over a paper with red X's?
An e-mail signals the time of the big red X's is here once more,
that trembling feeling returns as my search uncovers . . .
two books about world myths for Ms. Moore's and Ms. Gaffney's classes,
The Velveteen Rabbit exquisitely illustrated by Gennady Spirin,
a Patricia MacLachlan Christmas book with black and white illustrations,
Making Books That Fly, Fold, Wrap, Hide, Pop Up, Twist & Turn
(who can resist that title?),
a six word novel by Nancy Pearl
girl discovers reading then discovers life (blank journal),
each with big red X's slashed through the price tag
signifying 75% off and
for good measure, a tear-off Seize the Day calendar
from the 90% off table.
I no longer tremble in fear when I see a big red X,
instead I tremble in anticipation of University Books 75% off sale!
|Big Red X's Rule!
Six books and a calendar - all for $15.84.
