Want to know what fun is? Trying to teach poetry in North Carolina to a class of middle-school, sport-obsessed boys the day after North Carolina won the national championship!
I try to give examples of things I am talking about, so many of my poetry examples centered around NCAA themes. My example haiku (though I realize it was not about nature) was:
We are glad about that, yes?
Illinois is not.
Tomorrow, hopefully this craze will have passed a little. I wore a Carolina shirt today in solidarity, but Carolina Blue isn't my best color.
