One more N+7 draft, the last one for now. But I really liked the poems that came out of this exercise. I didn’t love DOING the exercise–so tedious looking up nouns (especially when you don’t have a printed dictionary, ahem). But I liked the way it made me think differently and put unusual things together. What a fun activity for classrooms to try.
Thanks for reading, and happy National Poetry Month! And if you ended up here by chance, fantastic! Here are a few links you might find helpful.
