An old flame referred me to a great Web site: Taylor Mali’s.
My new favorite poem is there. I also love this audio poem, What Teachers Make — this is what my former love referred me to in the first place. My students told me yesterday that Mali visited campus last year and was great. I’m so sorry I missed him.
In finding my voice, and in creating these blogs and sharing them with friends, I’ve encountered poetry again — in Helen’s blogs, in Andrew’s lyrical way, in Katia’s brother’s music.
I’m finding my way back to poetry. For now, enjoy Taylor Mali. I’m off; students await.
