Quick Write Poem--Character

 

I AM


I
am like a leaf.
Sunlight feeds my limbs.
I
am all alone.
Pine cones are my friends.
I
am curious,
a scavenger,
a thief.
I
am mysterious,
hidden, brave,
petite.
I
watch and wonder
everyday from my crypt.

You
will never see
all the crimes that
you commit.



Quick Write Tuesday:
Essentially, write about your character. Write a letter, poem, etc. about them. Deepen your knowledge of your character.
I went for the poem. I think my character is a rather poetic little creature and she should be swaddled in lovely words. I tried that here and had a really fun time doing this. I am enjoying this so much and think it might be the coolest thing I have ever done for myself (this whole writing camp)! I am waist deep in things to read, projects started, etc. But, I am not worried because I am really enjoying this part of my day. Thanks for reading.

  2. all the crimes you commit-very mysterious! She(?) is sneaky I bet, but goodhearted somehow, liking pinecones & all. Hm-m!

  6. This is lovely & reminds me of some little creature that lives in Pine Trees...a red squirrel maybe? Either way, beautiful :)

    A nice little riddle poem. The twist at the end is unexpected and made me ponder.

    Your quick write poem makes me think your character could be a critter?

    I love the imagery and the way you shift from I to you at the end. You do leave questions there -- which is okay, but I wasn't expecting the darkness, and wonder if the ending will move you toward another poem. I also love your idea of a poetic creature swaddled in words too -- there seems to be another poem there!

    So glad you're having fun at camp! I know I am!
