The Harbour / Poem

My last Creative Friday post was two weeks ago, focusing on black out poetry. The poem below was another I made through black out poetry (if you’re not sure what that is, you can have a look at this link). That conversation, A passing delight, Was perhaps the final one – The last of our […]

Blackout Poetry / Poem

In March last year I wrote this blog post about blackout poetry. I’ve explained what blackout poetry is in that post, so if you’re interested you can find out there. (You could also google black out poetry and you’d find a bunch of cool images.) For today’s Creative Friday I thought I’d post some blackout […]

Past / Poem

Fridays seem to appear more frequently now that I’m dedicated to posting something creative. I suppose this is a good thing? Once my short stories for my writing unit have been marked, I have permission from my lecturer to post them on my blog. This means that Creative Friday will no longer be made from […]

Dive In / Poem

I am not unique in my love of Fridays. I don’t have work on Fridays, no lectures (at least for this trimester), and have the freedom to blog and get things done. It’s an equally relaxing and productive day, and enjoyable because there are still two days of weekend to follow. Am I boasting? Sorry. […]

Running / Poem

When I was in primary school, I made it to the next level of cross-country (a 3km race). Getting to this next level involved coming in the top 6 of your age-and-gender group at your school, while the next level meant competing against the top 6 from other schools in the area. To this day, […]

A Sunday Morning / Poem

1. the curtains are closed but the sun wakes her anyway. you cannot sleep away the sun – she lazily opens her eyes. dust filters through the air she reaches an arm out toward the sky. “today there will be no clouds” she says. 2. Sunday mornings – they are her own. 3. the kettle […]

Mess / Poem

Last week I looked for the definition of ‘mess’ But it was hidden behind goals and forward motion. A few days later and all I could see was disorder When I was searching for ambition. Something small for a sunshiny Sunday, written by me. Sarah xx The picture below is of the draft I wrote […]
