Now it is your turn to be a poet

Now it is your turn to be a poet… about the meaning of the words and please be respectful in your choices.

Create your own poem using your top 10 most beautiful words.

The poem does not have to rhyme but should use some of the devices we have been working with.

The poem does not need to make sense, but instead should play with the sounds of words.

Make your writing look like a poem by using short lines, breaking for a new line when they want to add emphasis rather than when they come to the margin


Here is a poem of my own creation with my 10 most beautiful words

Here is a poem of my own creation with my 10 most beautiful words…

A grace of golden gazelles

Gathered round the gazebo

Nibbling on lotus flowers and tangerines

Relishing refreshing root beer on rye

Laser light slashes

The gazelles gabbling gaiety

A kaleidoscope of flying fur and

Fleeing forms!
