Hi folks! When I referenced working on National Poetry Month stuff a while back, I fear I got some hopes up that I was working on a big project. Actually, I was working on various things for my daughter's high school (Poetry in the Halls, poem videos in the morning) and also poems to go with a local art exhibit.
Next month, I may share songs with particularly poetic lyrics (feel free to send me suggestions). This month, I'm writing form poems for kids. First up, an acrostic and a limerick. I wish I could whip up an illustration to go with the limerick!

In a galaxy far far away,
kids play calamitous games of croquet --
when they hit the balls,
the balls split and fall --
light saber mallets are no way to play!

SMART, an acrostic
I was thinking about this kind of mistake when I wrote SMART. Yes, I am all about mistakes, as you know. More about that later.
Live Your Poem has the Poetry Friday round-up. Thanks, Irene!
