Change / Poem

I wrote this poem during a recent quiet time with God. Usually when I write creatively about Jesus I won’t post it on my blog because it’s not neat, it’s just words that aren’t edited or properly ordered. But today I thought I may as well. We’re all human, and things get a little messy […]

Lost / Poem

Seedlings planted in soil, Bees prepared for pollen. The promise of a rainy season. Hope comes with each beginning, This no exception. Growing requires dedication. But they bloomed too early, Thinking it was spring. Left yearning for sunlight, a drink. You tried to make things right, But nothing seemed to stick. Is there a love […]

Apology / Poem

A poem about apologies: recycled words sit in my mouth / grate like sandpaper against my tongue / I’m sorry / only they are not my words / but what everyone else is whispering / I pick up apologies and carry them home / they marinate in the kitchen / but they do not hold […]

Nanna / Poem

My Nanna died last week, and I don’t know if that’s a strange thing to put online or not, but here we are. I wrote a poem (at one in the morning when I couldn’t sleep) about her which will be read at her funeral. She hands me the plate Even though I have already […]

History / Poem

We may not have all had the same demands, But history is held in all our hands. Voiced or not, Choice or not, We all have something to mend. Sarah xx

Meaningless / Poetry

 A poem for you on Sunday because I’ve been neglecting Creative Fridays. Running around in circles used to be fun, Making entertainment out of dull conversation. Don’t start your bleeding until I’m gone, Fill up on lies before I return. Lower your expectation and hide your bleeding, I won’t soak up your tears with kind […]

Don’t / Poem

You tell me to be happy here But there isn’t one right way. Never thought you’d understand This isn’t where I should stay. Don’t take this too hard I’ll hold you in my heart. You shouldn’t follow me This path is for me alone. I’ll come visit you one day Once I’ve made it on […]

Kids on Bikes / Poem

This day brings with it many hours for playing Sims, which makes me happier than it should. Also, a poem for you: Tie, tie your laces And don’t be afraid to fall. Ride, ride your bike You’ll always have me to watch over you. You’re growing older Please don’t forget me When you’re riding through […]

Return / Poem

One day turns into two And I haven’t written a word. Three to four Then six more And this blog begins to feel lonely. I don’t really know where I’ve been, Busy with other words. But now I’m back (And hopefully not just this once), With a consistent routine And a bunch of ideas. You’ll […]

Raining / Poem

Here is a poem I just wrote for this Creative Friday! A delicate heart and bright cheeks. Eyes searching with care and Mouth frowning in that almost pretty way. The rain was loud and familiar. Sharp and severe on her skin and Keeping all the things she didn’t want to say. Sarah xx
