Earlier this year, I was pleased to announce that one of the first children’s books I had the pleasure of contributing to had just hit stores. Dear Tomato: An International Crop of Food & Agriculture Poems – edited by Carol-Ann Hoyte – was finally available!
And although I continued to promote this collection of children’s poems, I just realized a few weeks ago I’ve never shared any of my poems from the book here. Time to do something about that!
I am very proud to have three poems included in the book, including this one:
Fair is Fair
(a lesson in Fair Trade)
all might be
a farmer’s only
chance to give
a chance to live.

I also hope you’ll check out all the Poetry Friday links at Heidi Mordhorst’s little home on the web, My Juicy Little Universe. Today, it’s a diverse universe of verse! Check it out and you’ll see what I mean.
Oh, and if you didn’t get a chance to read my post from this past Tuesday, please take just a couple minutes and learn about why I’m encouraging folks to #WriteLikeNoOneIsReading. If you deliberately write without an audience in mind, it can be very liberating…so come learn more!
