Today in English we looked at ways of encouraging learners to write creatively. Our lecturer took us thru a whole process which culminated in this poem. Enjoy – I’m on a sugar high 😀
Round little seedling lookalike
Anyone of the chocolate persuasion would be drawn to you,
You slip out of my fingers, clattering on the desk like rain on a tin roof.
With this sound I begin to think that maybe
Your pebble self might be a safe shell
Inside which a small creature resides, hides,
Traumatised by my violent mishandlings.
Still, I eat you,
And wash down my guilt with a gulp of water.
