On Wednesday for Ethical ELA’s Open Write, Britt Decker created a picture book poetry prompt. I was inspired by a new book, Mighty Wings, by Debbie Clement and Sarah Joy. It is a lovely picture book about the life cycle of the monarch butterfly.
I chose a line from the refrain and wrote a golden shovel about my grandson, who is due in June.
My Heart Sings
My new love already holds my
Heart. I haven’t met him yet, while he still
Sings his song of creation. “I’m
Watching you,” I whisper.
Your sweet life will bring joy and a
Mighty hope of new growth,
Wings of a bright future.
Poetry Friday this week is hosted by Tricia at The Miss Rumphius Effect. Tricia shares the Exquisite Corpse poem she and the Poetry sisters wrote, along with her revision called “Post-Pandemic Life.”
