Day ONE – A Salute to Hispanic Stories (Un Saluda a las Historias Latinas)
Hispanic Heritage month, September 15 — October 15 is a time of year to pause and reflect on the rich history, heritage, and contributions of Hispanic and Latino (LatinX) Americans to the United States. The goal this week is to expand our scope and see Hispanic/LatinX Americans as “More than Migrants”.
Today, I invite you to craft a narrative poem retelling a story written by or about a favorite Hispanic American author. Generally, this would mean a five stanza poem that includes an exposition, rising action, climax, denouement, and resolution. But, thanks to the sacrifice and service of many of Hispanic servicemen and women, this is a free country; you may write in the format that works for you. In the introduction to your poem, please include the title and author of the book.
Here’s my poem, CIRCUITS
I invite you to POST YOUR POEM in the comments box.
