A Little Trash Can Be a Big Difference

My son's class had a writing assignment where they had to write a poem based on a prop. His prop was a tiny crumpled ball of foil. He just turned ten.

A Little Trash Can Be a Big Difference

A little trash
can be a big difference
How? A tinfoil ball
can be a little star, a puddle
of mud can be
a blue ocean
a piece of paper
can be a big landscape a
bottle could be a chair
Trash can be
a Life


  1. very creative poem! I really like it!

  2. I am impressed! It's very simple but very profound - but still from an imaginative child's point of view. You must be very proud.
