read write poem

you lay blossoms at my feet
weave liquid silk round
my ankles running upstream


*I'm sharing an older piece inspired by my love for Nikki Giovanni's work and prompted by a recent article about the poet at rwp.

very nice...tomorrow morning I try to teach third graders how to write haiku--wish me luck! Love the June Jordan quote also--she's my hero...
