Over at Two Writing Teachers, they are hosting a one week poetry challenge. As I don’t have nearly enough poetry of my own to use in mini-lessons, I decided to participate. Also, I feel very unsure when it comes to my own poetry and I feel that if I am making all my students participate in our lessons in class, then I must participate, too!
I tried writing all day. Nothing was coming. So I ended up working with what I had….frustration!
Sometimes I hate to write.
There’s nothing in my head.
Nothing is important. Or important enough.
I can’t even think.
I look for the prompt.
It frustrates me, makes me angry.
I walk away and say later.
