You Just Wait: Powerpack Poem 2 - Numbers

I am back with another poem inspired by Sylvia Vardell and Janet Wong's  newest book, You Just Wait - A Poetry Friday Power Book. Today I am sharing the poem I wrote inspired by the PowerPack #2 prompt: Numbers (number poem). After writing a phone number down the left side of the page I wrote a poem using the same number of words  in each line as the number in the phone number.

Over the next several weeks I will be continue to respond to the writing prompts with a poem in the style detailed in the book. Again, I highly recommend this book for young writers (and writers who are young at heart ;).

    1. Thanks, Liz! I'm loving the exercises in this book. =)

  2. I think this poem really captures the tween/teen voice— and mind! (and WHAT a GREAT way to illustrate it!!!)

    1. Thanks, Janet! Your prompts are fun to explore - even when my mind is WAY beyond my tween/teen years. =)
