Poem in Your Pocket Day

Today is Poem in Your Pocket day at our school and it is really such an excellent way to say goodbye to poetry month.  Of course, I had a poem in my pocket, too. A Haiku for you.

Most of my students chose to write their own poems to keep in their pockets and a couple copied poems from their favorite authors. It was so fantastic to see them on the playground sharing their poetry with one another and I was humbled to learn that I was the subject of a lot of their poetry. 
Check out this haiku... it's ok to count the syllables to check ;)

This one below is from a very special student - she has made AMAZING progress! 

And here's a haiku...
Freestylin... (read this one with that coffee house poetry vibe going on)

A little more freestyle...

An awesome acrostic...

Willie made the cut, too! Haiku for Willie...

And one superstar decided to whip up a diamonte poem- like a boss! Wow!

So sweet!
