I haven't had time to do anything with the Silliness Challenge until this afternoon. Erin and her friend M and I sat and spent a little time on it (after they did their homework). The challenge today is to write a Haiku about falling asleep then spend 10 minutes drawing a picture about it. Unfortunately I couldn't get our pages to scan but decided to at least post our poems.
Here is Mary's poem:
Sleepy at School
I sit in my desk
All sounds fade away from me
My eyes close slowly.
Now imagine a girl with her head on her desk for the picture.
The glow of magical light
Beckons me to rest.
Insert picture of a full moon with moonbeams reaching downward with little music notes throughout the image. (trust me, it sounds better than what I actually drew).
Erin didn't like the constraints of the Haiku so she wrote her own thing.
Falling asleep is wonderful.
Close your eyes and go
Picture a girl lying in bed asleep with a dream bubble above her head, a horse running free.
Now write your own poem with a 10 minute sketch!
