More Poetry Adventures at Titirangi Library

I met another talented group of poets last week.

They joined me for a workshop at the wonderful Titirangi Library.  We started off the afternoon with a little warm up and the poets wrote some fantastic lines…

Anger feels like fire burning down your back.

Happiness smells like freshly baked bread.
Holly

 

Happiness sounds like a butterfly singing.
