Thanks to Robyn at Life on the Deckle Edge for hosting
Poetry Friday this week.
One of the most amazing poets on the planet is Lee Bennett Hopkins. Today’s his birthday and all of us in the Poetry Friday community want to say Happy Birthday, Lee.
Thank you for inspiring and pushing poetry into the world. Here’s to having a fabulous day.
I’d like some of your “poetry seedlings” beautiful mix of words Jone, thanks!
Yes! He has done SO MUCH to scatter poetry far and wide! I hope I’ll be one of his seedlings someday!!
Ooooh! Love. Love. LOVE.
Bold, colorful, so much in so few words – like LEE! Thanks for joining the celebration with your own fine work, Jone! :0)
Just lovely–and so apt. I love the idea of poetry scattering like seeds.
I saw this on FB and loved it there, too, Jone. Your photos are exquisite, and the poem’s seedlings so, so perfect for Lee.
A perfect image for you, too, Jone as you scatter poetry seedlings with your students!
Beautiful! I love your haiku coupled with your words of thanks “for inspiring and pushing poetry into the world” — such a fitting tribute for LBH.
And poppy is another name for Grandfather…just realized this morning.
How wonderful to scatter the seedlings to grow a beautiful world, Jone. May I capture this for a proposed spring gallery.
I love the idea of poetry seedlings scattered in the wind. What a beautiful birthday tribute to Lee!
