Sci-Ku Five – Shadows

Today’s post wraps up five days of sci-ku for National Science Week. But it’s not finished yet, because if I’m going to enter a sci-ku (or 3) into the competition, I need to write MORE… because these have all been published.

Today’s Poetry Friday is hosted by Reading to the Core.

  1. Well, hello there! Glad to see that you’re hopping on the Poetry Friday wagon!! I missed writing with you in January — happy that we’ll connect each Friday!


  2. Welcome to our Poetry Friday! I was compelled to stop by when I saw the word “katswhiskers.” Glad you learned that we have no rules other than sharing our love of poetry.
