Carol Topolski and Daniel Lehan on National Poetry Day
For National Poetry Day, we’re posting the “reflections” we have received from two of our artists, Daniel Lehan (word artist) and Carol Topolski (writer). To celebrate our tenth anniversary, we are asking our participants, artists, community partners, Patrons and other stakeholders to jot down their reflection about Create. We would love to hear yours. This could be a few sentences about a project you took part in, or a poem, picture or song that reflects what the experience meant to you. It would be great to know what the project was and when you took part.
When you send it to us at firstname.lastname@example.org), please let us know if we can use your name or if you would prefer to remain anonymous.
Inspire someone with your reflection today!
Head turning, habit spurning, skill learning
Much joking, rib poking, no smoking
Plot mashing, word thrashing, thought hashing
Character forming, brainstorming, no yawning
Story making, no faking, boundary breaking
Dad reaching, no preaching, trust teaching… Create!
