In honor of National Poetry Month, I have composed the following magnetic poetry:
At Magnetic Poetry, you’ll be given a random set of words you can play with until your kids whine and scream about it being their turn. At that point, you should probably stop and discipline your kids before you go back to playing with the words.
Needless to say, I had forgotten how much fun it is to play around with poetry. I found the Magnetic Poetry site through a blog I follow called Habitual Rhymer. The blogger, Lori Degman, has been participating in the A to Z Poetry Challenge, which I definitely recommend you check out, if you haven’t already.
There are many wonderful poets participating in the A to Z Challenge, which means you can get many wonderful poems delivered to your inbox to inspire, make you laugh, or make you groan while simultaneously hitting the delete button, but I promise the groaners are very few.
Oh, and if you do decide to play around with Magnetic Poetry, post your poems in the comments. I’d love to read them.
