Poetry Friday & #142 - Similarities
A sneeze can tickle you all day long.
A sneeze can come at once. Ah- CHOO!
A sneeze can take you by surprise.
A poem can be like that too.
A sneeze is a poem.
A poem a sneeze.
Words and germs blow in the breeze.

This is #13 in my Poetry Friday series of poems about poems.
Students - I often notice the different ways that people sneeze and wonder what a sneeze says about someone's personality. Yesterday (in the shower), I began thinking how sneezes and poems are alike. I believe both to be natural and healthy. Let yours free...happy Poetry Friday!
