Poetry Friday - Just Read!

Elaine's recent cinquain post got me thinking about this form of poetry. Since yesterday was National D.E.A.R. (Drop Everything and Read) Day, I wrote this original poem during a really l-o-n-g meeting. Today, I share it!
Read to Know
You can
travel the world
visit places unknown.
Dream, pretend, do over again,
just read!
Happy poetry Friday, all!


  1. Tricia,

    Now that you're in the poetry writing mode, we'll have to start our own special day: Stop What You're Doing And Write A Poem. But I'm not sure a S.W.Y.D.A.W.A.P. Day would catch on!

  2. Hi Elaine,
    How about these:
    P.R.A.W.E.D. - Poetry reading and writing every day
    P.R.A.W.N. - Poetry reading and writing now!
    My favorite is:
    W.A.R.P.E.D. - Write and read poetry every day! (I guess there are some who say this is warped!)
    Have a great day.

  3. What a fun poem. L-o-n-g meetings are good for creativity sometimes. I like all the ideas listed above.
