‘Duck’ – so many ways this word can be used. Lovely to explore different ways of telling a story and to hear the stories behind the use of the word.

Artificial – poetic expression
‘Artificial’ – where did it take us? It was a word that took us in many different directions. The good, the bad, the ugly it could be viewed, in the eyes of the beholder of course.
Alien – poetic expression
It seems the feeling of alienation, came through in the poems, and we hope you enjoy the diversity of the way in which this emerges.
Teabag – poetic expression
‘Teabag’ – now who would have thought such a word could bring out so many themes. We hardly realised ourselves what would arrive.
Empty – poetic expression
‘Empty’ – lots of stories around ’emptiness’, some funny, serious, profound, comforting… all inspiration for expressions – poetry, prose and anything in between.
Stubborn – poetic expression
‘Stubborn’ – the realisation that we name and label to help describe what we see in the behaviours around us. So what does it say when we express something or someone as ‘stubborn’?
Genius – poetic expression
While we often view a genius in a positive light, we also recognise, that like most humans, it is not all ‘roses’. And what is ‘genius’? Often we think of the grand, however what about the genius in the simple?
Surprise – poetic expression
‘Surprise’ – it was no surprise that this word, used frequently in our language, brought much variation with the direction of the poems this week.
Quirky – poetic expression
‘Quirky’ – gave us time to notice the little things, which after time, had us recognise were endearing things, the funny little things, the subtle things that make us smile or warm our hearts.
Manners – poetic expression
Have we have learnt to carry a range of manners that have prevented us from, saying things we actually feel, and what is our truth?
Thrill – poetic expression
‘Thrill’ – a word that took us on many journeys! What we loved this week, was the way in which we could feel the ‘thrill’ of it, as the poems unfolded.
Eerie – poetic expression
‘Eerie’ – what is eerie to you? What do you see? How does it feel? For some of us, it is not somewhere we want to go too often, as it can bring up more than we want to face.
