Who am i

Who Am I?

Christian Poetry This is another of my Christian encouragement poems, exploring the question “Who am I?” and recognising the unique value of every individual.   Today I met a stranger.  That stranger asked my name.

Easter: Just for me?

I have often heard the following questions.  In fact I have asked them myself………. What has Easter got to do with me? Why is it relevant? Why did Jesus have to die anyway? This poem is the answer to my own questioning.  I hope that it makes Easter more relevant to you too.

Royal-Apology-image_thumb.png

A Royal Apology

  This is a funny letter poem, written with rhyme and rhythm, and including lots of word play (of the toilet humour variety!) and occasional moments of alliteration.  It is the third poem in a trilogy which needs to be read in order to understand the content.

    This is a fun, imaginative and descriptive children’s alphabet poem.  Children love describing aliens, as they can never be wrong, so the challenge here is to describe them so succinctly and precisely that the alien can be recognised from a picture. It’s a great, fun way to combine literacy and art.

A Bitter Pill

      This is just a fun rhyme and rhythm story poem, including exaggeration for effect (hyperbole), with one word play phrase too.  It is based on a true scenario that anyone who has ever owned a tom cat will probably be able to relate to!
