Concrete Poetry = Concrete Talent

My daughter never ceases to amaze me. She is driven and so very talented in everything she tries.  Her 7th grade language arts teacher assigned a concrete poem to be written visually for class.  My daughter (age 13) began to work on a poem and the outcome was amazing.  I know I can be a bit biased but I was very impressed and once again a proud momma.  I’ll share it with you now…Enjoy!

Powerful Loner

Twist and turn along the ground a speeding, speeding spiral

Never knowing where I’ll touch down

20160311_100006No control over the power,

The force of my wind.

Everyone runs from the breath,

Since fear is what I send.

I only want to frolic and play,

Is the damage really my fault?

From the houses in my path,

I do my best to sway

No control over the power,

The force of my wind.

I enjoy my fun, but regret it after

Seeing what I left behind.

Why can’t I be a storm that only bring laughter?

Me the villain for Dorothy and landowners

Although I never remain very long,

I’ll forever be a Loner!

No control over the power, no control over the power, the force of my wind.
