This poem is published in the May edition of School Magazine, New South Wales.
I have been looking at older poems I've written and re-vamping, changing, tightening the words and images. It is very satisfying to be revising older material that didn't quite make the grade. I have begun doing this with picture book texts also and even turning one into a play!
It is satisfying on another level also in that I realise that over time I have written a lot of material!
Some stories or poems cannot be redeemed but the writing journey all adds to the skill and content of any new material written.
And I want to write more consistently in this blog.
Let's see what the writing year brings.
