My Poetry

Hi there! I've been taking a writing class (aimed at the emergent k-2 writer ) this week and have enjoyed it very much! I thought I'd share a piece of poetry that I had to write for the class. I'll share it in class tomorrow.

Here it is, don't be too rough on me. OK?!

Beautiful Blue
Blue is the sky and the crashing ocean waves.
Blue is the taste of a sweet ripe blueberry.
Blue is the innocence I see when I look into Olivia’s eyes or the feeling you get when you fail but try.
Blue is the smile I get when I hear, “la la la la la la la la la la la” tune of the Smurfs.
Blue is the minty freshness that comes from a stick of wintermint gum.
Blue is the unending clear sky on a calm day.
Blue is complex.
