raindrops on windows
I remember how Helen Keller
learned water

This version appeared in another journal:

Helen Keller

I appreciate the ideas of editors and publishers. And I remember the moment that inspired the poems!

Poems For Bulletin Boards

I am adding some new posts to my site, Poems For Bulletin Boards.  Teachers are welcome to use my photos and short poems, with proper credit.

And I also include art from Public Domain sites, that are well-managed and careful about copyright laws.  Of course, their policies apply in these cases.

I took the photo of the forget-me-nots yesterday.  Books are some of my best friends.  I treasure books I have received as gifts, and I enjoy buying used books at libraries and thrift stores.  This week I bought books that had been discarded, though originally donated in memory of someone.  I thought, “These books have found a new home.”  So many stories with blogs and books!

Peonies are growing with daylilies.
