GloPoWriMo: Day 19

It’s the nineteenth day of GloPoWriMo and today’s prompt was to write a paragraph that briefly recounts a story, describes the scene outside your window, or even gives directions from your house to the grocery store. Now try erasing words from this paragraph to create a poem or, alternatively, use the words of your paragraph to build a new poem.

I wrote a brief retelling of Little Red Riding Hood, followed by an even briefer poem.  I hope you enjoy it.

Big eyes
Better to see
Big ears
Better to hear
Big teeth
Better to
