THEME: Someone who feels curious

Here is my entry:


By Michelle S. Kennedy

She looked at him- curiously.

He was writing so furiously!

What was he doing,

with his glitter and gluing?

Now scissoring snippets

were dropping small clippets.

And making the floor

very hard to ignore.

She leaned in to see.

“Could it be for ME?”

With Valentine’s near,

she smiled ear to ear.

Just who was it for?

She would have to explore…

Sean finished at last.

Her heart pounded- fast.

And then the bell rang…

Her heart felt a pang.

Such dreadful suspense.

She’d lost commonsense.

The next day she waited

for the card he’d created.

It’s Valentine’s Day!

He was coming her way…

She glanced away- quick.

She felt a bit sick.

“Hi Maggie,” he said.

Her cheeks turning red.

“Can you give this to Kiki?”


Kiki? But Kiki was GEEKY!

Kiki? She was so FREAKY!

Maggie frowned and looked down.

Now she felt like a clown.

Her Valentine’s Day

was going astray.

“Um. Sure,” she said sadly.

Her heart hurting badly.

As she walked towards her friend

she tried to pretend

to be happy and bright,

though feeling contrite.

She bumped into Chad

and boy was he glad.

“Here Maggie! For you…

This is long overdue.”

She was caught by surprise.

He had twinkling eyes…

And her Valentine’s Day

was again underway!
