Happy Poetry Friday! Welcome, everyone! (Wondering what Poetry Friday is? Click here.)
This month, we needed a last minute change to our plans, and someone (I think Liz? It’s usually Liz who keeps us blessedly on track) suggested a list poem that had to use two of the following words: paper, stars, messages, promises, dirt, flour, rum, hope. I’m not sure where the idea of things in a school locker came from, but it welled up from some mysterious place.
I’d still like to work on the ending…pause on that nothing for a moment longer before moving on to summer. But this is what I’ve got right now:>) I’m looking forward to seeing what my Poetry Sisters have come up with–right along with you guys!
