Poetry Friday


A girl wrote a letter on an orange
and placed it on a doorstep.

That day the sky tasted fresh as mint.

from A Maze Me by Naomi Shihab Nye. Greenwillow Books. 2005.

Poetry Friday is hosted this week by Jama at Jama Rattigan's Alphabet Soup.
Interview with Bill Moyers

Gorgeous. Thanks for posting this--I know of Nye but have never read anything by her, and now I'm definitely going to check her out. (And I'll be craving oranges for the rest of the day.)

So simple, but so powerful! Thank you!
