Here in this room…

This poem was written using a writing idea I first came across on a workshop led by British poet Dr Geraldine Green – see my writing ideas page for a link:

Today in this Room

I hear the harsh rattle of starlings,
the abrupt jacks of the smallest corvids
and the melodious repetition of a thrush.

I feel the wash of a breeze
so faint it might be a trick
of the excitement fluttering inside me.

I see heads bowed to notebooks on which
pens and pencils meander, and my friends,
and we are all three together at last.

I smell concentration
devoid of distraction
full of inspiration.

I taste sweet juices flowing
in my mouth
and my mind.
