Bridget at wee words for wee ones is hosting the Poetry Friday Roundup today. If you’d like to know more about Poetry Friday, click HERE for an explanation by Renee LaTulippe.
Hello, Great Readers of our series! Just In case you haven’t visited before, let me tell you a little about A Great Nephew and A Great Aunt. My great nephew, Landon (a seventh-grader) and I (his great aunt) collaborate. I write a poem which he illustrates. We started this collaboration in the fall of 2014 and have had so much fun with it that we decided to invite others along. Landon and I will continue to have a new episode on one Friday of each month. The other Fridays are filling up quickly with guests. I have created a page on my website to view all the episodes of A Great Nephew and a Great Aunt. Click HERE to visit the page and enjoy past episodes.
Today it’s my pleasure to share a creative collaboration from . . .
Matt Forrest Esenwine and His Daughter, Katherine
From Matt: I looked at Katherine’s art and immediately thought of Jupiter’s Great Red Spot – which is a never-ending storm – but then thought it was too beautiful to be a storm. From there, as they say, the poem wrote itself!
Matt and Katherine
Many thanks to Matt and Katherine for sharing their talents with us today.
