Summer Poetry is a good way to develop your kids summer reading skills. Go to the Wilkes Public Library and get them reading some classical poetry. However , you might look South to Miami and find a unique poet to explore. The Biscayne Poet is a unique writer developing in South Florida. I crossed path last night at Cultural Fridays in Little Havana with the poet.
Sample Poem :
Today I know love is real
to look into your eyes is to get
Lost inlove and happiness
and today I know the moon will
always hang blue and fragrant
as if hanging from an invisible
branch made of gold ....
love love love love........
Oscar Fuentes - the Biscayne Poet
