Haiku Garden: Laura Purdie Salas

I am delighted to have children's writer and poet Laura Purdie Salas join us today in the Haiku Garden!

Laura professes not to be a gardener, but the proof of her green thumb would be this little beauty she's planted right here.  Today's little ditty was inspired by the six-packs of annuals she recently bought to perk up her own surroundings.

six golden suns wait to shine
on May summer lawns

I do believe I am overdue for a trip to my local garden center for some sunshine and inspiration!

If you, too, are seeking inspiration, visit Laura's website to explore her own vast garden of information and resources for kids, teachers, writers, and for the many readers out there who are nourished by Laura's works of poetry and nonfiction.  While there, you can subscribe to her blog, Writing the World for Kids, which is also a lovely melange of poetry and nonfiction.  I promise you won't be sorry you made the trip.

Thank you for visiting today, Laura, and for bringing your sunshine to Today's Little Ditty!
