213 - Fluff and Fire

Day 213. While I was waiting at the Orange County airport today for Kevin and a Juan I explored an app called FridgePoems on my iPad. Basically it gives you a bunch of cards with words on them, which you then have to try and arrange into sentences to form poetry. It's harder than it sounds, as the words are selected for you and you only get a limited number of conjunctions to work with. And nouns, verbs and adjectives too!
Here's my first attempt at constrained poetry ... What could your students come up with using this idea?
