#Word2017 bloggers – creative response #1

For #Word2017 a team of young creative bloggers working with All Change will post poetry and creative writing responding to festival events and performances. Here is their first piece – created after Book End No. 1  on 1 June 2017 – the launch event for this year’s festival:

For a long time she had felt….
Like the observer
The person looking through a spyglass unable to touch what she saw
Bottom of the heap
The invisible ghost along the corridor
A floating planet unlocked out of gravity, desperate for the sun

Until one day a friendly face gave her…
A book that spoke her story
A pen and paper to make her own
A space to dance
A space to create
A tune to play
The notes to make a song.
She was given…
A stage to be be seen
A microphone to be heard.

She had found her centre…
In words
In music
In pictures
In movement
In laughter
In people
She had found herself.
