Each month, poet and children's author David Harrison selects one word as inspiration for poets. The word for March is "root." Hope you enjoy my poem below.
By Beth Carter
The square root of 8
Or is it the other
Let’s get to the root
of the problem.
Math and writers
don’t often mix.
I try and think of a unique way to incorporate each month's word. I appreciate all of David's inspirational, well-chosen words aned root was a favorite of mine. I even drafted a children's picture book using "root."
Do you like poetry? My husband thinks all poems must rhyme. I've tried to explain free verse, but I admit I most often write in rhymes or haikus.
Feel free to submit a "root" poem of your own! We'd all love to read it.
