Poetry Friday: A really big post about very little things

Once again, fellow writer/blogger Michelle H. Barnes has had a massive response to a little challenge, and I’m happy to be included among those who participated!

poetryfridaybutton-fulllEarlier this month, Michelle interviewed children’s poet and blogger (yes, we’re all bloggers!) Amy Ludwig VanDerwater about writing, inspiration, and her brand-new book, Every Day Birds (Orchard/Scholastic, 2016). Amy challenged readers to write poems about “small things.” All March long, folks have been submitting their poems…and today Michelle is sharing all of them on her blog!

Click HERE to read my poem as well as all of the poems that Michelle has received, and for all of today’s Poetry Friday links and fun, please visit Heidi Mordhorst at My Juicy Little Universe!

(Oh, and if you’re wondering what it’s like to be a stay-at-home parent trying to raise two kids while running a business AND being a children’s writer, I share a little insight in this past Tuesday’s post!)

  1. An entire universe to explore in such a tiny point. A universe of love and opportunity to find in those demands. We can get lost in the big and the small. Take a deep breath and you’ll find your way.
