Poem in our pockets – circles all around

The poem in my pocket today set the theme for our weekly walk with the Mushrooms and caregivers.  Here it is, to share, and print for National Poem in Your Pocket Day. On Thursday, April 30th, if you see me, ask me to share the excerpt I have transcribed in my pocket.

We really enjoyed our morning in the Pinetum.  Thanks everyone for helping to spot so many circles: holes, mossy shapes, ferns, nests, and acorns. I will post photos here soon, to help us remember our morning together.  As promised, here’s the “round” we sang as we walked around the listening fountain today.

Next week, don’t forget to bring along something you think would help make our round gathering nest extra soft and nice!

Our poetry theme is extended until May 8th, the deadline for our Community Haiku Challenge. Thanks for entering, and helping us to build a poetry garden.

Hope to see you at May Market this Saturday!
