Away with Words writers had a wonderful evening at Over the Edge on September 12th. The selection of work presented by the writers included poems by John Flannery and Julie Burke, and rehearsed readings of 2 plays by Mary Kinsella and Paddy McDonagh.
Writing workshops for the Away with Words groups have begun again and all are busy writing – for the next event!
Sometimes I am lonely
Like a red flower growing in green grass
Then I see and hear the river
Like a tap dripping
It is black
It flows smoothly
It makes me think of feeling calm
I see it
And feel that I like it.
In winter I remember you tending the fire
In spring I remember you did carpentry for Fás
In summer you took me to London for my birthday
In autumn you brought me to school
I remember your face looked like mine
I remember your voice. It was soft
I remember your smell, nice aftershave.
Missing you is black
A rainy day.
