Sometimes when I tutor writing or teach writing workshop, I wish I could be in the kids’ shoes so that I could join in the fun!

Today I created an example of a “Color Poem” and a “Feeling Poem”, so that my student would have a model for his work.  I decided to include it in my blog.  I love the color blue, so I started with “Blue” as my Color Poem, but then I realized that “blue” can be a feeling word, too, so they actually morphed into each other.

Here they are:

Blue

ocean waves, sea

lake, dreams,

baby’s eyes

telephone

snow at night

ice

coldness

darkness

unhappiness

frustration

losing something

losing someone

desperation

depression

boredom

loneliness

Blue
