Wake up your poetry brains with 15 Words or Less (guidelines here)!
Happy Thursday, and if you’re visiting as a result of Mary Lee Hahn’s kind shoutout at nErDcamp MI, welcome! We love having new people drop by and give this a try–or use it with their students, even if they never post. On the Fourth, my husband and I helped out Minnesota Brass Drum and Bugle Corps?at two parades, and I snapped this glittery hoof at one of them.?This image makes me think of:
1)’dogs in silly outfits, like bridal gowns
2)?wonder whether a horse would be proud or embarrassed by this hooficure
3) glittery hoofprints that might be left behind
And here’s my?first draft:
My feet flash like fireworks!
Sparks explode each time
they strike the street!

Now it’s your turn! Have fun and stick to 15 WORDS OR LESS!??(Title doesn’t count toward word count:>)?
P.S. I’m at summer school today, working with students on their Can Be… books! I will try to stop by and comment on each poem, but it might take me an extra day or two!
