Wake up your poetry brains with 15 Words or Less (guidelines here)!
On Father’s Day, we went to the Smack Shack in Minneapolis (delicious), and I took this pic there and Waterlogued it. This image makes me think of:
1) summer backyard “bonfires”
2) a heat gun
3) MacBeth’s 3 witches
And here’s my?first draft.
And I’m trying something NEW! Inspired by Amy Ludwig VanDerwater’s favorite poems padlet, I’d like us to collect our poems both in the Comments today AND on a padlet. Just click here to go to our Padlet, click twice on any open space not covered by a note, and leave your poem. Please put your name and poem title in the Title spot. You do not have to create an account to participate. Also, if you post your own poems on your own blog, you can simply link to the blog post in the padlet, and it will feed in for people to read it. I think it would be fun to have all our 15 Words or Less Poems in one spot for readers/teachers to enjoy them. The down side is that you can’t leave Comments on each others’ poems in a padlet (at least, as far as I can tell). I’m going to try having poems in both places for a few weeks, and then I’m going to decide where to have them in the future: on a padlet or in the Comments. Feel free to weigh in with your opinion if you have one:>) NOTE: I have to moderate these notes on the padlet, so your poem will not appear immediately. Don’t panic, and please don’t post twice. Thanks for playing along. We’ll see how it goes!
It’s your turn! Have fun and stick to 15 WORDS OR LESS!??(Title doesn’t count toward word count:>) If you leave a poem in the comments, and if it’s 15 words or less, I’ll try to respond!
