~ Oscar Wilde
Poetic saski-naski for you today (Google Translate says that "saski-naski" means "miscellany" in the Basque language).
* I made an African American Poets word search. Can you find Maya, William Stanley, Gwendolyn, Lucille, Countee, Gayle, Rita, Paul Laurence, Cornelius, James, Nikki, Eloise, Angelina Weld, Yusef, Claude, Marilyn, Ntozake, Charles, Alice, and Phyllis?
* Also, here are resources for teaching African American poetry from the Poetry Foundation.
* Ever thought about trying Storybird? I talked about it earlier this week. Their site is worth a visit.
* And lastly, a bit of healing for you:
Come HealingRead the rest here.
by Leonard Cohen
O gather up the brokenness
And bring it to me now
The fragrance of those promises
You never dared to vow
The splinters that you carry
The cross you left behind
Come healing of the body
Come healing of the mind
