This is the 10th year that Two Writing Teachers has hosted the Slice of Life Challenge. Thirty-one days of writing during the month of March, here we go!
Yesterday, I wrote about Tara Smith's post about Amy Krouse Rosenthal , and I spent the day thinking about a poem I could write about what I make. If you watch Amy's beautiful video about making things, you might be inspired, too.
I don't do a lot of poetry in my writing practice, so this is brave for me, but that's a good thing since brave is my OLW for 2017.
Things to Make
Make things work, make a list, make a mark,
make a deal,
Make sunshine, make that call, make up,
make it real.
Make a change, make way, make a story,
Make a list, a plan, a pathway, make a day,
make a winner.
Make a cocktail, a care package, cookies,
Make it green, warm, and sunny, make it pretty,
make it rhyme.
Make a wish, make a difference, make a promise
Make someone listen or smile or think
Make banana bread, salad, cookies,
Make the most, make it ours, make it last,
make things better.
Make meals, dates, and gardens
Make memories, make friends.
Make the most, make mistakes,
Make good, make amends.
