Poetry Friday: Writer’s Notebook

Here’s a poem from Ralph Fletcher’s book, A Writing Kind of Day.

Writer’s Notebooks

My brother Tom says he’s a hundredaire
with two hundred fifty dollars
in his bank account.

Dad’s a thousandaire.
I gave baby Julia two pennies
so now she’s a pennyaire.

When I look at Julia
her little bald head
reminds me of the planet Earth.

I put that in my writer’s notebook
to maybe write a poem later on;
it feels like money in the bank.
