to write a poem that plays with voice. For example, you might try writing a stanza that recounts something in the first-person, followed by a stanza recounting the same incident in the second-person, followed by a stanza that treats the incident from a third-person point of view.
(When I wrote this poem I was thinking of my childhood days long ago when we children used to play Leapfrog, not the electronic game they have now, it was a fun physical activity, we played outdoors at recess. (Leapfrog is a game in which players take turns in leaping over other players that are bent over from the waist. –Dictionary.com)
I wasn’t quite sure if children still played Leapfrog now so I looked it up on the Internet and found some videos on You Tube that I thought were worth sharing. Looks like Leapfrogging is still alive and well! 😊)

I grew up in the Midwest, in the country, and my childhood home was very near to Des Plaines River. My brother and I spent many of our youthful days at the river. In the summer we would be fishing and skipping stones, and in the winter ice skating.
This week’s Haiku Horizon Prompt “skip” caused me to remember those fun times we had trying to skip stones across the river. 🙂
