Poetry - A Blackout Poem

Inspired by a blog that I started following because of the Slice of Life challenge, I was decided to celebrate Poetry Month by writing more poetry.  I wanted to try the blackout poem that Leigh Anne had beautifully shared.

So, I started a couple of different ones, and then I decided to pull the summary from the book jacket of  Fish In A Tree!  I read this book recently for the first time, and I am hooked!  It is fantastic!  I have recommended it to colleges, students, and friends!  

So, I took a picture of the jacket and used an app to mark out all of the extra words that I didn't need! Then, while I was writing the poem, I actually took out more of the words!!


Then I took what was left to create this:

I LOVE it!!!  I will write more of these and share them with my students!  I can't wait to see what they create!!
