A Poem of Slices

As I was reading posts a few days ago, I came across this post titled, Slicing Titles Make a Poem. I was intrigued and immediately I thought this would make a great last day post! Rereading through the titles made me smile. I'd already forgotten some. In my work to create a poem, I tried to keep the titles very true to form. I added three words to the entire poem. For me, the revision was mostly about moving around and making the lines fit together. I had fun revising and creating this poem. Here it is...
Real peek into an ugly moment
From grumpy to grateful
It’s the small things
Like conversations about flamingos and
A day with a friend and lots of chocolate
Am I a writer?
I don’t wanna write
How do I notebook?
Here’s my day in notebook entries
My day in six-word memoirs
We are writers
Words hurt, words heal
The seven writers I’d like to meet
You can blog about it
Why am I teacher?
You teach middle school?!?!
Sixth graders save the day
Sacred words, sacred friends
I can’t keep quiet
Ten years in the blink of an eye
What’s left?
Reading moments
Favorites party
Starting over
Flexible seating
What’s your theme song?
This has been a poem of slices.
Thank you for another amazing year!
