Jazzy Z

reciting in sequence
I come to the end
I pause and say it again
liking the sound of it

it spins with happiness
loving my attention
children love it too
as much as they love zoo

when our Z dances,
zebra forms in the wake
foot tap with a zing
and circles zoom in, zoom out

"Z might be last letter-
in jazzy, it is in the middle"

i always think that most letters starting with or even having the letter z are in a way beautiful :)

You haven't quite left mathematics behind with 'sequence' and 'circles' but this fair zips along.

A great take on Z. And it is at its best in jazzy, too.

Yes, right in the middle of life! So cool! I especially like, "it spins with happiness"!

Andy Sewina said...

Yeah, a dead jazzy poem - cool you!

I love the bit about children loving zoo!

I almost found myself wishing you'd been a bit more mysterious- maybe just calling it "JaZZy" and not ever coming out and saying what the letter is. And you're right. It has to be the most fun to say. All vibratey!

I like the zebras forming in the wake.

I like this - I once wrote poems on Z, X and O - I intended to do the whole alphabet, but somehow never finished.

quite jaZZY, for sure! Z is also the fun letter to pronounce.
