Poetry is an exciting way to lose yourself in your imagination, and to be able to use it in books to help the younger reader 'see' the endless possibilities of where they could go; what they could do; what they could be, or even how they feel about the world around them; or even what is happening in their lives as they grow up; the things they love or are frightened of. Anything can be expressed in poetry, whether or not it rhymes - really doesn't matter - the feelings and thoughts are their very own, and are therefore very real to the individual.
I love to write, and am hoping that by expressing my own thoughts and feelings, it will encourage children to see the many wonderful journeys they can have too - just by imagining!
