Poetry Month: The Slide

I’m taking a little break from Kid Lit Village to celebrate poetry month. I’ve been working on the poem-a-day challenge for the month of April. My poems are drafts and I like to think of them as rough diamonds that have yet to be polished. Here’s an example of an unpolished poem, inspired by a visit to the park with my preschool class.

Swoosh down seated, arms up high,

On your belly, feet behind,

Daring risk takers go head first

Or find a friend and double up

Hang your legs over the side

Or scramble up defying gravity.

Sliding through life

Do you follow the rules

Or create your own?

-C. Mackey

Thanks for stopping by. I hope to have some more poems for you this month. Have a great day!
