Block #lessons #poetry

sound in the old chapel

A block

used to build

will grow taller still

with much work and skill

the workers strive a tireless lot

if pulled at small and weakened spot

the building looming tall and proud will  plop

Follow this prompt from Poets United:

BUILD IT UP –One Word At A Time Your first line has two words. The second line has three. The third, four, and so on. Length is not limited so long as each line contains one more word than the line before it. Write until it’s ready! When you’re finished, go back and give your poem a one word title. 


Ever play the game Jenga? It’s a great lesson on what happens when we go over the top with just one too many levels.
