POETRY and PERSONAL POST: Breathless Break

Breathless Break

I see children sliding down a rich green slide,

While a blind boy plays piano with his mother by his side.

There’s buzzing, laughs, screams and cheeps,

As little brown birds hop around at my feet.

 

I feel the rays of golden sun as a breeze,

Swirls lightly around, I see dancing leaves.

As the music escalates, lingering laughs rise,

A pure level of delight, an atmosphere energised.

~ Hi fellow Writing and Education Enthusiasts!

It has been too very long, I must say. Not only have I missed the peaceful feeling of becoming immersed in writing and imagination, I have missed being here, as we support each others passions. I have been busy enjoying a much needed heavenly Summer, while I volunteer, work and see important members of my life. I hope you have all been well!

I am happy to say I am back for 2014! A year for traveling, studying, supporting, growing, exploring, and writing!

I hope you enjoyed my poem, Breathless Break, which was written in my lunchbreak outside, in this magical moment.

 

Sincerely Jody

POETRY: Running Out of Time!

Running Out of Time!

Tick, tock,

Tick, tock,

There is someone inside,

Where do I hide?

 

Tick, tock,

Tick, tock,

They might have a knife,

My life is in strife!

 

Click, Plock,

Click, Plock,

I can hear searching hands,

Do I have a chance?

 

Click, plock,

Click, plock,

I hide under the draw,

On the vibrating floor.

 

Swish, swosh,

Swish, swosh,

They knocked over a glass,

And now they’ve walked past…

 

Giggle, gasp,

Giggle, gasp,

It is just dad,

Whoops!

 

Sincerely Jody

PERSONAL POST: Developing Writer

Hi writing and education enthusiasts!

It had come to my attention that I had yet to publish a personal post about myself as a developing writer. So here is some background information about me and my passions!

I am currently studying a Bachelor of Education, and am undergoing a Writing for Children and Young Adult course as one of my many valued courses that the University has available. This course gave me the extra push to finally start this site, and I am proud to announce that I am extremely excited, to build relationships with you all and share my progress as a writer and educator.

I have a novel in progress, a dream to start and write a non-fiction in future, numerous educational short stories in progress, song lyrics and music created, and I spoil myself with time set aside to create a range of poetry.

Do you sometimes find it hard to set aside time from your busy lifestyle to nurture your writing passion? Trust me, you are not the only one. However, it is important we never give up on this passion. I hope that this site will encourage you all to find the time, and I look forward to hearing from you all!

Sincerely Jody

~ Dream big, strive for more and never give up!
