Once upon a long ago,
I stood before a tower.
Magic blew in from the east;
the hero met the coward.
Obstacles were overcome,
the happily came after.
Evil withered, crumbled, turned
the page to the next chapter.

From Carol (Carol's Corner):
the day is all about blue sky
and green grass and
a few wispy clouds and
i will march right up
to the enormous stone castle
after crossing the moat
filled with hungry alligators
i will lift the lions head knocker
on the heavy wooden door
i am a long lost princess
here to meet my prince
please let me into
and they lived happily ever after…

From Linda (TeacherDance):
Will you come to my castle fair?
I am so awfully lonely there.
‘Tis sitting tall at the top of a hill
and surrounding land is bereft and still.
No forest primeval’s near this hold;
no witches or dragons to shiver you cold.
Just me in the upper turrets of stone
wanting, oh wanting to call you home.

I will be using the media to inspire my poetry, but I am going to invite my students to use my daily media picks to inspire any original creation: poems, stories, comics, music, videos, sculptures, drawings...anything!
You are invited to join the fun, too! Leave a link to your creation in the comments and I'll add it to that day's post. I'll add pictures of my students' work throughout the month as well.
