Happy New Year! Again! This is not a numbered post, but rather a surprise, a collaboration, and an invitation.
One neat part of this holiday break was beginning a collaborative poem with Charles Ghigna, otherwise known as Father Goose. A fan of his poetry, I often read and learn from Charles's poems over at his two blogs: Father Goose and Bald Ego. For the past couple of days, we have sent these lines back and forth, and now would like to open them up to you. Please feel free to add, take out, or change lines of this poem if you wish. It'll be fun to see what grows.
Please write your additions, subtractions, or changes in the comments below. Should we have some takers, Charles and I will cycle back to put this poem together again and repost our community poem.
Students - please let us know if you try this. Get with a friend and write a poem together. It's more fun than I expected...especially if you are working with someone who is open and flexible.
