Monday’s Poem

17.08.2020

Starlings

Starlings
Wheeze and chirp
A cheeky monopoly on the roof tops
Aerials act as stands
For a show of slick feathers
Purple, green and black
Yet
When they fly!
Take form
And behold
The iridescent
Shape shifters
Of our skies

Morning everyone! I wrote this poem for my little book ‘Fractured’ in 2018. I love watching the local birds around my home, even in a terraced house with a yard instead of a garden we get a lot of visitors.

I’m aiming to finish this blog in September, however there is still time to see your work published here if you want to send me any poetry or writing. For my regular class in York I will continue emailing out weekly creative writing tasks (so don’t worry!). If anyone reading this from around the world would also like a weekly email to get nature focused writing tasks please email me at e.mckenzie1@yorksj.ac.uk and I will add you to the mailing list.

Look out this week’s creative writing class. I have a fun story about a racing pigeon!

See you then!
Best wishes,

Emma
