Poetry is contageous!

Martha Gallagher shared a poetry form with a circle group and I passed it on to the KCS fifth graders.  They became poets!  The form is called dekaaz.
 

Dekaaz is a form of poetry created by Rachel Bagby, a performance artist, poet, author, composer and vocalist.

 

Rachel herself says…

 

Dekaaz is wisdom jazz in just 10 syllables. Each dekaaz (dek-ahs) has 10 syllables in three lines.

 

2 syllables in first line

3 syllables in the second

5 syllables in the third line

 

Dekaaz is not complete until you speak it out loud to another living being.   Below are the fifth grader's creations.
