I've had a wonderful time giving poetry/graphic poetry workshops to local primary school children over the last couple of weeks.
Preparing materials was fun. Happy, jealous, sad, philosophical, and jolly sorry were some of the feels I incorporated. And the kids all took part enthusiastically. Every single one of them created a brilliant poem.
Here are some of the results:
"I want to write a poem about when mountains are penguins."
"I want to write a poem about when the beach is like a sleeping dog."
"I want to write a poem about when snow is a white rabbit."
Seeing the pride on a child's face as they read a poem they have created is such a marvel, the only way to describe it would be to write or draw a poem, and maybe I'll do do that. In the meantime, I'll enjoy looking at this display put up by some of the children. Well done, kids!
