I love the rocks of the North Shore of Lake Superior! This pic makes me think of:
1. Treasure hunting
2. The Wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald
3. Poem in Your Pocket Day
OK, the picture doesn’t actually make me think of #3. But it’s Poem in Your Pocket Day! So print out a poem–find some cool printable poems here from Poets.org–and carry it around today. Share it with people. Make extra copies and give it away. Tape it to someone’s desk. Slide it into someone’s locker.
Here’s my poem first draft, in haiku to keep up my Poetry Month Haiku-a-Day:>)
jasper, agate, flint
sagging, rattling, damp jacket–
weighty pocket poems
