This morning I was reviewing my current writing assignment.
I had decided to provide examples of many poetic short forms for teachers to use in lessons, even though this will not be not the focus of the publisher’s product.
I wrote the following poem following a word substitution format.
Thinking about the little verse during my revision process, I decided it was too abstract for fifth and sixth graders and replaced it, but it seemed a shame not to share it with someone, so here it is:
Languages: flowing rivers between thoughts
Rivers between flowing thoughts: Languages
Flowing thoughts between languages; rivers
Between languages, thoughts; rivers flowing
Thoughts—rivers; languages flowing between
If you want to write one of your own, use find and replace in Word. Noodle with the results until you get something that pleases you.
