Poetry Friday: An Original

The Climbing Tree

Branches

sturdy

old

A deep hole

for your foot

As you hoist yourself

upwards

you can see

all the buds

blossoming

–Stacey, May 2008

This week Poetry Friday is being hosted at Wild Rose Reader. (Also, I have the ‘narrative makings’ of another poem over at Crafty Creations. I’ll be writing this one up during today’s minilesson demo when I show my students how they can write about things they think about deeply/wonder about.)
