As I said in my earlier post, we have been looking at the concept of poetry in school. I have picked one more shorter poem that I have written to share with you.
Doll in the Breezes
I am orange and yellow with brown high heels,
dancing as gracefully as a flamingo in the soft breezes.
To the sounds of the fan and gentle hums of the
I overlook my friends hanging overhead,
and students eating and talking like inquisitive parrots.
I also smell the kitchen all day,
thinking what they are cooking.
Hoping I can steal a bite.
I was inspired to write this one from the current grade 5 arts display around my school. They created dolls out of paper-mache with different characteristics and this particular one caught my eye. Also, we have been working on "Kinetic Typography" projects. This is where we animate our poetry. I am currently working on animating my "What a Poem is Not" poem, and hope to share it with you soon. But just to give you and idea what Kinetic Typography is all about, here's a funny short video showed to me by my ICT teacher that is done in the style of Kinetic Typography:
I don't think that I will get to that standard of animation yet, because that video would have taken a long time to make! But I am enjoying this challenge and hope to finish it soon!
