When I was at Kids for Books in Hamilton I got this great book, Firefly July: A Year of Very Short Poems, selected by the wonderful Paul B Janeczko and illustrated by Melissa Sweet.

You know how much I L O V E short poems.

Short poems are the sweetest thing.

They can be funny.

They can shimmer and shine with a picture.

They can chime with music.

Every word must be just right!

 

My challenge: Try writing a very short poem. No more than 14 words. I won’t read it if it is a single word over!

DEADLINE for your Short-Poem Challenge: Monday 15th September

Send to paulajoygreen@gmail.com. Include your name, year, age and name of school. You can include your teacher’s name and email. PLEASE say it’s for the Short-Poem challenge.

I will post my favourites and have a book prize for some poets.
