Thanks to Kiesha at Whispers From the Ridge for hosting our poetry community.
This has been a week. It’s difficult to believe that on Monday, we traveled to Central Oregon for grandgirl’s drop off. Understanding the wind and traffic we chose a different route. Little did we know that were on a road that within 12 hours would be engulfed in flames. Little did we know that the place we ate dinner would be flattened by fire overnight. The smoke has moved in and settled around us, it’s an unwelcome guest.
Here are two thoughts about the week.
And today marks 19 years, since once again innocence was destroyed,
On September 25, I will be hosting Poetry Friday.
NATIONAL MATH STORYTELLING DAY #MathStorytellingDay is September 25
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 combine both BRAVE and a Math Story.
Need help with some mathematical poetry types?
