The MoonThe nightlight of theDarknesssurroundingCasts a shadow on our planetSometimes a ball of cheese,other times a crescent roll from Starbucks.
In the poem “The Moon” I used twoMetaphors. I thought of how the moon issometimes orange, and then I thought ofhow it was a crescent, and then I thoughtit would be cool to say it was from“Starbucks.”
NighttimeThe moon,Sleeping,but still leaving his light on for us.Singing,Singing to us,a lullabyfor us to fall fast asleep.
In this poem, “Nighttime” I usedPersoniﬁcation. I thought how the moonwas soothing, so I said that he wassinging a lullaby to us to help us fallasleep.
I’m an AstronautStepping upto the Moon. First footprints,Feeling ﬂoaty... Bubbly inside me,Look down, my home.
In here, I just used the moon to think ofdifferent things that people did with themoon, and then I thought of anastronaut!
CratersCraters, cratersIn the Moon. Popping in, Looking up.Showing pizazz,to the planet.Orbiting around like a baseball.
What I did here is the same with what Idid with the Astronaut poem. I thoughtof things that were related to the moon,and I thought of Craters!
Chocolate PlanetsMars is a Mars bar, don’t you see? Milky, and Caramel.What else could it be?Onto the Milkyway,Still Milky and Caramel.Back down to Earth-Dove’s are Milk Chocolate!
Here, I just decided to make a poemabout this. I thought that it was cool thatthey made chocolate bars and candy, andnamed them by the planets!
Hanging MoonThe moon,Seems like it’s hanging by a string. Twirling, whirlingRound and round. So light, so heavy. hanging by a string.
I used repetition here. I thought itseemed awesome to visualize the moonhanging by a string, and so I made apoem about it!
Reﬂection PageThe Moon is a great Anthology Theme, because it’s very basic, and youcan think up a lot of poems for that certain theme. Also, a lot of thingsare related to the moon, so that helps, too! In some of my poems, ideasjust popped into my head, like the Craters, Chocolate Planets, and the“I’m an Astronaut.” I learned a lot of things: Like how many ideas youcan get from just the Moon! I also learned that I like non-rhyming poemsbetter than rhyming poems, because I can express my thoughts better.When I write non-rhyming poems, the words just ﬂy across the paper,and I get so many ideas. Rhyming poems take concentration andthinking, because you have to think of a million words to rhyme withthe word before it.
