Tiny Hands

Visit Cathy for the round-up at Merely Day By Day.

Tiny things...this seems to be on my mind lately. I wrote a post on Two Writing Teachers Thursday and a commenter said it sounded like the start of a poem. I thought, of course, it must be. So I went with it and created a little poem about tiny hands.

Tiny hands
miniature fingers
tipped with limitless stories
tiny hands holding
new beginnings
creating memories
tiny but mighty.

Morning Quiet Song

Take a peek into some poetry at Writing the World for Kids with Laura Purdie Salas. You can also find me over at Amy Ludwig VanDerwater's blog Sharing Our Notebooks.
Here is my Poetry Friday haiku of a morning quiet song.

in morning stillness 
one cricket chirps in the dark
stars turn into sun
