Melissa, aka The Scholastic Scribe wants to welcome us to Mrs. Scribe’s Poetry Slam. I could explain to you what a poetry slam is, why we’re doing it on Tuedays and why you should join, but I’ll let Mrs. Scribe’s very own words do that:
Poetry slams are meant to challenge the creative among us, and get those creative juices flowing.
I want to write a poem every week (make it Tuesday…I have nothing better to do on Tuesdays, do you?).Â I’ll post my poem, and perhaps a neat photo or two, on my blog. I hope then that some of y’all will follow suit, posting a bit of poetry on your blogs, or a photo for thought, as well. Doesn’t have to be anything epic.Â A limerick, a couple of lines of open verse.Â Anything that moves you will do the trick! And if you don’t feel like writing that particular day, don’t.Â Just have fun flitting around the blogosphere to see what others have come up with for your reading pleasure.
So, without further ado, here is my photo and a bit of verse to go with …
One sun-kissed day
worth a smile
the apples were too tart.
