Playing with Poetry

This is a page I’ve created where I can share some poetry dabbles.

I hadn’t expected to be writing poetry this busy week – but I’ve been inspired by classes I’ve worked with  – so here is a little sprinkling of words. Click on the links if you want more information on the poetic form/technique..



a crocodile with its nose out of joint
encountered a croc at breaking point –





Playing with Personification;

Cold Start

On a cold morning
the car mutters
and splutters
then shudders into silence,
settling to sleep
snugly blanketed in the warmth
of the dusty shed.


No Homework

My homework book
slips out of my school bag and hides
amongst the dust bunnies
that gather under my bed…

I can’t find it, anywhere.
