Thanks to Carol at Beyond LiteracyLink for hosting Poetry Friday this week.
Last week, I discovered kayaking. It’s something I’ve wanted to do for a long time. And it felt like I had been doing it a long time. By the time actual Friday arrives, I will be getting ready for my third time kayaking in about 10 days.
My notebook entry for August 29, 2020
I wrote a Shadorma, which is a 3-5-3-3-7-5 syllable Spanish poetry form.

Tomorrow I take my three grand girls kayaking at the lake. It will be warm and hopefully we can make it to the bridge and back.
DO YOU KNOW WHAT SEPTEMBER 25, 2020 CELEBRATES?
NATIONAL MATH STORYTELLING DAY #MathStorytellingDay
A little history. It was created in 2009. It’s a day to tell stories using math.
The fourth Friday of September is #NationalBRAVEDay. September 25th is that Friday.
This began in 2017 to uplift and honor the women who make up feel brave.
So why am I focusing on September 25, 2020? Because I will be hosting Poetry Friday.
How about the theme of poems that tell a math story or honor a brave woman might be fun.
Maybe your poem will feature a poem steeped in a mathematical structure: Fibonacci, Zeno, Cinquain, Nonet, Sijo, or Arun. Or any poem with a mathematical structure.
Maybe your poem will combing both BRAVE and a Math Story.
