I’m in the poetry zone!


poetryHi guys,


My latest assignment for my OU course has been a poetry assignment. As part of the course I’ve had to write some poems. Here are a couple. The first one was my attempt at writing about an animal, real or mythical. Of course I wrote about the Invisible Dragon! The second was a result of an online tutorial where we had to write a poem after listening to a piece of music. I listened to Tchaikovsky’s Piano Concerto no. 1.


The invisible dragon


 She penned her wish upon a page

A candle lit to cast the spell

She slept, she dreamed and she awoke

On her invisible dragon.


A longing deep within her soul

For life’s adventure to begin

Now sprang to life before her eyes

On her invisible dragon.


She dreamt of love and far flung climes

As life it’self just passed her by

Was she at last upon the way

On her invisible dragon?


All through the night she swooped and swirled

The cold night air upon her face

She laughed and shouted at the sky

On her invisible dragon.


Then morning came and cold, wet dew,

Or so she thought, was on her cheeks.

But tears were all that she had left

Of her invisible dragon.

I dreamed of children playing:

Kiss chase around trees,

pretending to be

a flotilla of sailing ships, or

a pair of swans gliding along a river

their wings outstretched, ready

to soar high above a waterfall

that boils and bubbles before dropping

into the rapids below. Then,

bored now, they break into a sword fight.

More to come when I’ve had my assignment marked, we can’t publish them online until then.


I hope you enjoy this snippet!
