Shape Poem – What do you envision?

Our next poetry assignment is to create a shape or picture poem. You can use paper, magazines, construction paper or any materials really. It can be any size. Please be creative and inspired!

You can also create it digitally. Here are two digital examples. For a digital version, you can use Glogster, Word, Draw, or whatever program fits your idea. We will need to get a screen shot of it for publication.

I wrote one as I was dreaming about spring last evening…

Spring Dream

See Gaby’s World Blog for another shape poem on love.
