In My Ghost Box

In my ghostbox shall put the chill of an empty room,
The hissing of a human snake
And a spider lost in my heart.

In my ghostbox I shall put a book of spells, in a locked cupboard
The story of a spinning globe
And the choking dust from a bomb blast. Read the rest of this entry »


My Thoughts

When Tamsin said we were going to do some work about paintings at the National Gallery, I thought it was going to be boring. It turned out to be interesting and fun.
I got to know George better by thinking aloud about the paintings. Al asked a lot of good questions to make you think about paintings. She made it easy for us to say whatever came into our heads. Read the rest of this entry »

The prompt from Julia this week is Remembrance.
Although her picture shows poppies and is obviously linked to Armistice Day, you can take the prompt in what ever direction you like.
Good Luck, and remember to post your stories here!

Autumn Colours

Posted: September 27, 2013 by dukefrederick in creative writing, poetry

Autumn comes in many colours:
Grey as the road to beyond
And the early morning mist.

Red as the leaves on the trees
And the petals on the dying roses.

Yellow as the slices of lemon in a jug of water
And the pencils in children’s schoolbags.

Green as the crunch of an apple in mouth
And the woollen scarf keeping me warm.

Blue as the sky’s limits
And its reflection in the frosty lake.

Brown as the trunk of the spreading tree
And the flocks of sparrows in the air.

Black as my leather jacket
And the night sky/
