My entry was inspired by springtime and the colorful hats my students wear!
A striped fuschia hat!
Once it flew on a sycamore leaf,
The cool breeze sent it to a field,
A bunch of hens was after it.
A swallow grabbed it,
Now, on the almond tree,
The hat speaks of its travels,
”Come with me! There’re so many places to see!”
