It is Day 22 of our A to Z Poetry Challenge. Today is the letter “V”. “V” is for a lot of things…but Renee LaTulippe over at No Water River is all about “V” for Video. She has the most wonderful Poetry Video Library. Make sure you visit…you won’t want to leave. Also, make sure you don’t miss her interview. Our incredible organizer, Rena Traxel asked all the right questions, and Renee gave all the right answers. On top of that, Renee shares her own poem, Ugly Pants.
Rena challenged us to write a poem about a vampire, keeping in mind all the performance tips that Renee shared with us. I wrote two very short poems.
Little vampires out at night
Sharp, sharp fangs. Bite, bite, bite.
Little vampires sleep all day
Sweet, sweet dreams of a neck buffet.
End the beating

I loved them both! So cute. I especially loved the rhythm of the first one.
HAHAHAHAHA! I am in love with “neck buffet” AND your reasoning for choosing necks instead of just blood. You are a HOOT and a half, Penny. Would love to hear both of these out loud!
Thanks for stopping by Renee…and watch out for neck watching weirdos!
HA HA HA! Love the poems! I love Ms. LaTulippe’s video poems! 🙂
Me too, Erik…she’s the bomb!
I second Lori, I love the “neck buffet”. I also think the “bite, bite, bite” would be fun to act out when reading this poem aloud to others. I tried to write an vampire acrostic and couldn’t think of anything so I think it’s great you came up with one that uses strong words.
Thanks! I had blood buffet…but figured blood is pretty basic…but necks…there are choices—a buffet :•)
I love the contrast in these Penny and I am a big fan of short and sweet. These are awesome. You are so good at introducing people too 🙂
I’m a fan of short & sweet, too, but sometimes they’re hard to write and make sense.
The first one is ADORABLE, CUTE, FUNNY! The second one I LOVE your use of language, Penny!
Thanks Pam. It’s my favorite, too.
Really cute poem – I love “neck buffet”! Also love the vampire descriptors!
Thanks, Lori :•)
Both great, but I especially like the second one 🙂
It’s my fave, too.
