The Green Blur

By Max Forsythe, Year 5

A green blur flies​​

over the broken books.

A Lego devil

crawls over the rocks

and it growls

like a dragon getting angry.

Mum says,

"Time to put away the Lego."

I hide the Lego van

under my bed

to play

another day.

Writers create pictures with words. Max created his word picture poem using techniques learned at a 'Picture This' workshop with our tutor, Gail Ingram. He also supplied the picture!

'Picture This!' was a Young Writers Workshop run in conjunction with Waimairi District Libraries during Kidsfest and fully funded by Creative Communities Waimakariri.
