It's my 50th day in a row of writing. I started with 31 days of Slice of Life posts, and now I am on day 19 of writing poems. I just might make it to the end of April with this challenge. I have been using the challenge to prepare for our poetry unit of study. The young poets in my classroom have been reading poetry here, there and everywhere. We're just about ready to start writing poetry too so I've been pondering some memories I think they might enjoy. Last night I was thinking about summers at the pool as a kid. Our pool had a tall high dive that was a must for every swimmer to conquer. I thought I'd see if I could recreate that memory in a poem.
The long thin board looms over me, touching the sky
to the top
full of decision.
to the edge
I stand above
I look down
I have come
Take one last
