‘Travel forward into the mist, do not fear what is obscured from your sight. Instead see the beauty in its light. And the truth in its shadows.’ Day 12 of #thejanuarychallenge Our Poem. Write a poem and get a friend to write the last line. I’m by no means a poet but the weather and life have been providing ample inspiration lately. Last line written by @susie_plum and it’s perfect @64millionartists : @cscullionart Asking someone else to finish my poem is more amusing than I had expected it to be - Ayesha #thejanuarychallenge #poetry My sister finished this...think it pretty much sums up today's challenge ☺ Day 12 “Our Poem” - Ballad of the responsible person. Last line kindly donated by the marvellous Karen Rough #TheJanuaryChallenge #64MillionArtists Feel free to add away- #thejanuarychallenge #64millionartists : today's challenge was to write a poem... and then get someone else to write the last line. Writing poetry is a long long LONG way outside my comfort zone... I couldn't even think of anything to write about. How do poets do this?? Then I realised that poets probably feel the same way about words and poetry as I do about fabric and the things I can make from it... and maybe the inspiration could be the same. So I wrote a poem to an otter I saw on holiday last summer (look at my previous post to see a video of him/her). And then I appealed on IG for someone to finish it. Thanks so much Sarah, @covingtoncollections, for providing such a fitting finish to the poem. #collaboration #groupeffort #teamwork #poetry #otters #ottersofinstagram #lutralutra #inspiration Day 12 of #TheJanuaryChallenge - Requests for Laura's last line are going well (swipe for comments)..... now it's your go people of Instagram ;)!

I enjoy poetry but never give myself time to write myself. Makes me want to do more..... 'Travel forward into the mist, do not fear what is obscured from your sight.

This week my grandma (Ilene) will be celebrating being 80 years young To commemorate this occasion I want to tell you about the song her knitting needles sung She’s an understated artist with yarns of wool which she has in the ton Her muses and her art will be showcased and premiered on her two grandsons. The knitting needles set to work, as sparks flew and they sang… TIPPITY-CLIPPITY-TAPPITY-CLICKETY- TIPPITY-CLIPPITY-TAPPITY-CLICKETY- TIPPITY-CLIPPITY-TAPPITY-CLICKETY- TIPPITY-CLIPPITY-TAPPITY-CLICKETY Her creations started small to fit our tiny digits Blankets, hats, socks and even a straitjacket for when we would kick and fidget The wool bound us like a loving mesh, as she made it cascade, loop and twirl And her most distinguished piece to date saw her take inspiration from the criminal world The knitting needles set to work, as sparks flew and they sang… TIPPITY-CLIPPITY-TAPPITY-CLICKETY- TIPPITY-CLIPPITY-TAPPITY-CLICKETY- TIPPITY-CLIPPITY-TAPPITY-CLICKETY- TIPPITY-CLIPPITY-TAPPITY-CLICKETY The “big freeze” of 89’ was frosting over Wales And this was when it gets a bit twisted in this wooly tale Out of her bag she pulled the brightest blue knitted hood She said “I knight you with my needles sirs and welcome to the Wooly Brotherhood” The knitting needles set to work, as sparks flew and they sang… TIPPITY-CLIPPITY-TAPPITY-CLICKETY- TIPPITY-CLIPPITY-TAPPITY-CLICKETY- TIPPITY-CLIPPITY-TAPPITY-CLICKETY- TIPPITY-CLIPPITY-TAPPITY-CLICKETY The wooly hoods had holes for our mouth and eyes “It’s a balaclava” she explained “we’ll sneak to school like spies” We never robbed banks, we just escaped the cold Thank you grandma, we’ll knit you banner which says “80 isn’t old”. @64millionartists #64millionartists #poetry #poem #knitting #balaclava Day 12: Write a poem and get someone to finish the last line (thanks to my brother!)

Inspired by my recent visit to the dentist and final line courtesy of my colleague. I haven't written poetry in years and am rather proud of this!
