*The Old Man of the Lake is 30-foot (9 m) tall tree stump, most likely a hemlock, that has been bobbing vertically in Oregon’s Crater Lake since at least 1896. The stump is about 2 feet (61 cm) in diameter at the waterline and stands approximately 4 feet (1.2 m) above the water.

I have procured a limited number of student poetry postcards. Would you like one?

    I love the detail about the tree stump. I haven’t responded to this photo yet. I did many of them, but petered out at the end. Thanks for doing the postcard project. I look forward to my special card.

    Lovely! And fun to see your journaling, too!

    Jone, l like your alliteration and assonance with letter c.It’s good how you keep the k sound in lake and secrets. And the repetition of lake and secrets is good! Great ending! Thank you for sharing. I would love a poetry post card from a student!
