My number was 1884. Here's an example:

School Day 1884

There's only one of me, 
but eight students have questions
and eight e-mails need answered.
Good thing I have fourth hour plan.


  1. Interesting option! My number - 9556
    My Poem:
    I don't work from nine to
    five. My digital life fills my days where
    a blog post can take fifty-six minutes
    to create, correct and publish. Done!

    1. Oh, to be able to work so efficiently!

    2. Oh, to be able to work so efficiently!

    3. Thanks for playing! I don't want to add up the minutes it takes to create a blog post...I tend to do it a paragraph at a time, dropping in and out as the mood and inspiration move me. Over a stretch of days a post will finally say "Done!" and then when I copy and paste into the site, there are still revisions that crop up.

  2. By the numbers: 9021

    My scaredy cats still
    have their nine lives,
    But our treasured Pooka has zero;
    Life is too short to live alone;
    Find a friend
    Two is better than one.
    I'm glad I've found
    my friend.

  3. This is Sarah, as it seems not to recognise me.

    My number: 8825

    Work and play are all one to me -
    as my play becomes work, work becomes fun.
    Modern life -
    blurring boundaries, my identities merge.

    1. It's so great when work = play!

    2. It's so great when work = play!

    3. If our work equals play, then I think we're doing it right!

  4. My number is 6681
    Fanny was number 6,
    Emily was number 6 too.
    Springer sisters, litter mates for life.
    Now they are gone we skip to Tommy,
    A rescue, number 8 but
    Number 1 in our hearts.

  5. 2503
    My best friend was an extortion victim twice within
    Five years.
    These traumas Zeroed out his confidence and self-esteem.
    He's one in 3 billion, beating the odds, but the odds beat him.

    1. Nifty use of the the numbers to craft an emotional poem.

  6. My number is 5871
    I don't work a 5 day, 8 hour work week.
    Instead, I focus 7 days a week with 1 purpose,
    to inspire and empower young people to reach their dreams.
