A Passion for Poetry?

In my blog, I’ve covered various ways of kick-starting your writing by trying something a little different, such as some flash fiction or writing a limerick. Poetry is another enjoyable way of expressing yourself with words and for stimulating your writing. You don’t have to be good at it; just give it a go and enjoy it. You might even uncover a new passion and talent.

Even though I’ve had some success in poetry competitions in the past, I’m no poet but here’s my effort:


Parent and Child


Trying times and tears,

Firsts, fevers and fears,

Washing, worries and woes,

Nurturing, needing and no’s

= the joy of being a parent.


Tanrums and terrible twos,

Pouting, potties and poos,

Stomping, shouting and sighing,

Learning, loving and lying

= the joy of being a child.
