science poetry


My colleague, Gene, is posting some great science poetry (aka sci-ku) over on our science blog, Science Buzz. This could be a fun activity for kids:

1. Read a science news story.
2. Write a haiku about it.
3. Include at least one relevant science link.
4. Post to Science Buzz and tag it sci-ku.

As if poems weren't nerdy enough!

Kill Poem by Frederick Seidel


SeidelSeidelI've been infatuated with the poems of Frederick Seidel lately, especially those from his latest book Ooga Booga. They are dark and grizzly at times but refreshingly elegant as well. They are like a dark sentiment draped over a bright city.

I am amazed to see how hard it is to find his books in stores or any mention of him in many poetry forums.

Listen to him read on his website (click Kill Poem for the best).
