Excuses

I couldn’t do my homework because I was on a run,

I didn’t shoot the basketball because I was blinded by the sun,

I will not go to bed because now I want a bath,

And I didn’t pay attention in class for I dislike math,

In art my work was messy because I didn’t use the stencil,

And now I can’t finish my report ‘cause I broke my pencil,

All of my excuses that I wanted to say,

Well, did they get me out of trouble… just for today?


Clouds

Wispy cotton floating in the heavens,

Like fluffy sheep in a blue pasture,

Slowly being persuaded by the nagging wind

Rain

The heavens boom ominously,

The sky crying and shedding infinite tears,

Turning the earth into limpid pools

Poems by Josh K

In class the other day we were taught how to make really cool poems out of newspaper. I chose a holiday article, but it doesn’t matter what you choose. On the article you decide the words you like and lightly put a box around them. Not coloring over your words make a grid by using a crayon and drawing horizontal lines across the words you don’t want. Be careful not to color over your words. After doing the same vertically, erase the pencil boxes so that you can see your words as blank spots. My poems read, “Heartwarming home, tradition extravaganza, families sip cider, share wonder.” The second one says” Atmosphere electric,when action night at a large level, packed home. Emerged strength, impressive.” Both of these are on a card for my grandma. They are easy to make and are fun. If you haven’t made a poem like this. You should try them, because they end up really cool.
