So for almost a month now (actually 26 days, but who's counting) I've been participating in Common Inspiration, Uncommon Creations, a poetry challenge sponsored by Mary Lee Hahn, over at Year of Reading. Every day, Mary Lee posts an image from Wikimedia Commons, along with an original poem. She invites other people to post poems too. There have been some remarkable offerings. Today's image is a soap bubble.

POETRY FRIDAY today is hosted by Laura Purdie Salas, at Writing the World for Kids. Laura also has a terrific Poetry Challenge at her website. Every day, she reads a poem, some of her own, and some by other poets, and then invites people to write poems, either using the same technique or about the same subject. I'm looking forward to sharing Laura's videos next month when several of our grade levels engage in units of study around that genre.
