Out of Standard: Cliffs Notes
Thursday, April 25, 2013
Take your favorite story and condense it into a poem no longer than ten lines, a "Cliffs Notes" version.
Your "Cliffs Notes" should be a reflection of what you feel is most important about the story you chose.
And let me be clear here: by favorite story, I mean that book you return to time and again. Or that TV show you watch back to back episodes of on a rainy Sunday, or that song, that video game, that painting. Stories are embedded everywhere, and we all have one we hold above the others.
My favorite novel: The Butterfly's Silence
Written By: Layla El-Othman, Kowait, 2007
A tiny butterfly
emerges from darkness to look for
the distant horizon...
She will fly away
from that silence which may
turn her into an abused prey...
She will fly high
for the sky
is her sacred target...
