Recent Read Haikus

Gah! I’m failing at posting!

All I’ve got to show for the past two months is a pile of half-written drafts. I’ve read so many books since my last blog post and I haven’t shared anything about them. In an effort to catch up, I’ve decided to write haikus for each of my recent reads. I hope it won’t be quite so long before you hear from me again. Enjoy!

What books have you read recently? Care to share a bit about it in the form of a haiku?! I’d love to hear it in the comment section.

When Love Arrives

Instead of reading my words today, how about listening to an awesome piece of poetry? I stumbled upon Sarah Kay’s work when I was hunting around on the web trying to find a way to make poetry more enjoyable for my students. Kay’s words and performances are stunning. If you’re like me, you won’t be able to stop at just one of her readings. This video is one of my favorites, called “When Love Arrives,” performed by Sarah Kay and Phil Kaye. It makes me wish I was a poet…and a good public speaker!
