SOL16, Day 24: Found Tanka

Read Aloud 

Listen to story.
When an underdog becomes
the hero, the boy
back of the class, middle row,
sees ideas begin, end and
drifts towards believing. Finds purpose.

I was at a loss. I had nothing. So I looked back to my last two March 24th posts and “found” this tanka.

Thank you to Tara Smith, who suggested looking back for ideas and to a voxer conversation on the importance of Read Aloud.

And thank you to Two Writing Teachers March Slice of Life Challenge. The fact that others show up when the writing gets hard, is profoundly inspirational. Find more slices here.

  1. Not having an idea leads to being creative and finding a poem. Wonderful. The few words hold the idea and feeling tightly together.
