Blackout Poetry

 

Today my students created some Blackout Poetry (an idea that is all over Pinterest). I am smitten with their brains. Forgive the image quality.

She was talking to me
I hardly even
know
but I felt
funny
so I
opened the wardrobe
What I found
was too private. I didn’t want to talk
But it was time.

the pearl shrilling
with
courage
And electric strength
kicked out
by a
bright
face
read from a great book

The flames danced
shadows
upon
Children
and
the books

his ears were
the music of evil
he slept
quiet as a
stone

something hurt you
felt
as
crushed paper
remember
me

evil embraced
him on both cheeks
death give up
my soul

that
Horned
little dragon
dis-
turbed in his shade
He missed
the music
his heart gave

through the crowd
came a sad
fault of His.
the World,
grew dark and dangerous

abandoned
running lose
Yes,
You’d think being my age was some kind
of disease

 

 

 

 


IMG_6733

She
was
useless
mindless tasteless

April
held a gift wrapped in
fault
That
triggered
favor

 

 

 

 


IMG_6735I had
hope
dim light
I felt so
certain
nothing had changed
slowly, painfully across
the great distance
weakly stopping
me
I heard my heart shatter
Letting myself feel the pain of losing
One. Two. Three.
Life outside this room.

Blinded by
the
outside crisp afternoon
that
evening

after a
breeze
of darkness,
he
searched for a true answer

 

 

 

 

 


I didn’t take pictures of all of them, but here are a few others I just like for the sheer wording:

I shiver in
the cold shaking. I
was
terrified
but
I looked out the window
I clumped
into her bedroom
sat on the edge of her spread
I’m sick

I sat through endless hours at
school
meteor shower. It’s a class assignment.


Poetically,
Des
