Try This! - Draw a Picture, Write Around It, Write a Poem

From Tyler:

I've been writing poetry for the last couple of weeks.  So I drew this picture of a stick to look at it in a fresh new way.  And I used that fresh new way to write a poem.  

You can do this too.  Draw a picture of something from nature and write around your picture about all of the things the object reminds you of. Then...write a poem!  If you want to do this just open your notebook and let your imagination fly, that's how I did it!

The Stick

I found a stick
It was hard
like a table
It's was long, it looked
like a snake
It had a point
like a knife
When I picked
it up
looked like
an elephant tusk.
