Poetry Slam – Blackout Poem

Task description: This week during I had free time, so I got to chooses what I wanted to do, I decided to do summer learning journey. I did task called ‘Poetry Slam – Wha – Blackout poems’. After that I completed the task, and I posted it on our blog. I enjoyed this task very much, and I hope to do more like this soon. Hope you enjoyed. Please leave a comment; thank you for visiting my blog.

My Blackout Poem: Roses aren’t always red & violets aren’t exactly blue. The society that we live in never seems to speak the truth. Smiles aren’t always happy & frowns aren’t always upset, people judge too quickly & our feelings are what they forget.

  1. Hi Zaria this is a truly cool blackout poem in my opinion. The poem is familiar with the old saying “Roses are red violets are blue” with a new twist. What was the original text like? It looks as if it was interesting too. Glad to see you are in the slam zone. Nā Matua Dave

  2. Kia ora Zaria,

    It’s Charlotte here, a blog commenter for Manaiakalani. I really enjoyed having a look at your work on the ‘Poetry Slam – Wha’ activity – ka pai!

    I found this poem to be very insightful and could definitely spark some great conversations between two people. My favourite line is ‘Frowns aren’t always upset’, I think this is a very clever insight – it reminds me of the saying ‘don’t judge a book by its cover’, have you heard of that saying before?

    How did you find this activity? Do you have any tips and tricks to share with your future readers on how to write a blackout poem?
