MyPoPerDayMo 4 & 5

(two in the voice of the teacher)

Mr. B.'s Busy Day

Two doors down, the sound
of drilling:
Ms. Solomon's file cabinet
opens again.
Now she can pull out
an onslaught of
Thanksgiving.

Just outside, the sound
of mowing:
colorful shreds of
grass and leaves
confetti the windows--
an onslaught of
the autumn.

In our bathroom, the sound
of splitting:
the toilet seat has
cracked in two!
The broken piece sits in
an onslaught of
flushing.

Thank you, Mr. B.

Very interesting juxtaposition, these two poems together.

By the way, "confetti" as a verb is fabulous.

Keep up the good work, Wonder Poet!

Oh, I love how the toilet seat broke and am assuming this is a factual thing!! Love.

Also I like how your ABC poem went along, surprised me and enlightened me.
The only one I really didn't know was write it down, FBA (maybe, can't look back to check). And a few others. We do have a code in education/teaching, don't we? Sometimes it is hard to keep up.
