As I was driving to work the other day I saw the full moon setting and instinctively wrote a poem in my head.... this then became an inspiration for a challenge I issued my students, which ended up to be a really cool activity.
So I'll challenge you: In 2 minutes or less, write a poem that has a subject (it can be anything), make that subject do something, and give the whole thing some sort of setting. Then, if you're feeling really brave try to incorporate and/or play around with some elements of style (figurative language, sentence structure, sound devices, word choice, etc.).
Here's what I came up with... I can't wait to hear what you can do!
The silvery moon
silently slips through
the wispy, pre-dawn clouds.
