Skipping rope

Rhythmic swing
Breathless hush
Rubbing on your wrists
Caught on your ankles
Tripping, laughing

This short piece of creative writing stems from a session at the recent LIANZA Waikato/BOP Weekend School 2014, held in Gisborne. The session was taken by the lovely Emma Darragh @darragh_emma (Community Librarian, Tairua Library) who runs creative writing sessions at a local Residential Care Facility. She challenged us all to the ‘one-minute’ creative writing challenge. The second word she gave us was “skipping rope”. The above result is what I scribbled in my notebook. See – all it takes in one minute; it helps just to get something down and not over-think the writing process! You can read my first ‘poem’ in last Sunday’s post.
