The Sylvia Plath workshop prompts can be found here. From all our free writing we each pulled a line to make a group piece…
Haikube poem by Mel Rees for warm up:
Group Poem from the Sylvia Plath workshop:
Greyness doesn’t seem so grey when it is as beautiful as this
A lonely grey pebble more simple than a stanza
She counts out the number of pills it would take to make her breath sulphurous
Mirrors sing of fish and men, bones collecting in the bottom of the lake
She travels through night terrors anchored to the moon
Freedom seemed to be suffocated beneath the stars
Bone stretchen, softening its hinges
The moon swings gravely across the sky, like a pendulum
In order of appearance: Harriet, Kieron, Mel Rees, Becca Audra, Anna P, Rob, Maya Chowdhry, Steph Pike.
