Details of my Poetry Month Project can be found here.
Kevin also has a haiku today for the GGB.
And we heard these originals (among others a bit too rough for publication just yet):
Here I go
off by myself
just a donkey
without a doubt.
Then I tripped
into a place.
It felt as if
I went 100 feet deep.
Then I realized
it was a tomb.
Three cheers for the donkey!
They thought I didn't have a clue.
I am at a place where you can get whatever you desire.
You can have something as cool as the wind, or as spicy as fire.
I bet you will admire
the ones we have hired.
So can you guess where I am?
If You Use Your Mind
China holds a conga line,
Egypt makes chocolate kisses,
Home is what's yours and mine,
America has famous Miss-es.
Earth holds land, sea, and sky,
but it would be nothing without creation.
Earth holds those who walk, swim and fly,
creatures of all ages.
Jungles are a line of I's,
pines are cones of ice cream,
snow makes lands of sparkly white,
ice cream that stands on tall mountains.
Liberty is a welcomer of copper green,
the sea is a place you long to see.
Palms hold food and water, too,
all these things are on earth for you.
Here's another MC wrote, inspired by Stonehenge:
Rain was falling on me,
only one place left to go.
I sat against the smooth stone,
shaded slightly from the rain.
The place seemed erie,
I wondered if anyone was there.
I thought I could hear whispers,
it's just my imagination.
I thought I could see figures.
I thought I could feel hands.
I thought I could hear voices.
I knew there was someone --
it's not my imagination.
I knew I could see figures.
I knew I could feel hands.
I knew I could hear voices.
I wondered if it was my imagination --
I wondered who the figures were.
I wondered if they were like me.
I wondered what they were trying to say.
