Character sketch: 1969 School Day Tale Told in Tankas
I’ve been reading Jacqueline Woodson’s brown girl dreaming, and I’m going to close out my last Poetry Friday post for Women’s Month with a passage from her book; along with a poem of mine that was inspired by her passage.
From brown girl dreaming by Jacqueline Woodson
“Somewhere in my brain
each laugh, tear and lullaby
Here’s my haiku
mold our characters like clay,
and build who we are.
