It's Poetry Friday so click over to Katya Czaja's blog for lots of poetry links. I'm joining today with an original poem about the cherry tree.
Amy Ludwig VanDerwater's 2013 poem project. I showed them the way she drew about her idea and then added words all around it. We decided we'd try it together with a tree outside our window. As we collected words and phrases, I started to notice a play with words beginning with "bl" such as blooming, blow, blossoms. They really wanted me to try to turn this into a poem for them….so here it goes.

blushing upon arrival
then turning pale.
in the breeze.
