Continuing my bedtime theme, here is an extract from a poem I wrote. A lot of us parents are battling with this at the moment; those long days and hot evenings! We might forget how confusing it is for our little ones.
A favourite of mine. This poem is featured in my collection, The Perfect Prompt (link in bio) which also includes prompts after each poem.
My cousin did some fantastic work with her class on this poem and they wrote verses of their own. It really was amazing to see!
What happens next?
Some of you will remember those night lights you used to get in the 80s that were houses or little animal homes or toadstools with ornaments inside. I remember having one and I wish I could see it again. Here is
Ｔｈｅ Ｎｉｇｈｔ Ｌｉｇｈｔ
The first of my bedtime themed poems.
I hope you enjoy.
One for the eldest…
This one is for my youngest, who is 5.
I’m so excited to announce my new blog under my pen name Savannah R James. Here you will find short stories, some photo edits and any updates on my paranormal projects. Here is a link to read my latest story, The House of Yesterday.
I will continue to post my poetry on this blog so it will remain active.
This little beauty was welcomed into our family home last weekend.
First, an announcement. I am now going to be writing my paranormal fiction under the name of Savannah R James. As you know, I write a lot of fantasy poetry and I wanted to separate this from my fiction, as the audiences may differ. I am delighted that my poetry is enjoyed by adults and children alike, whereas my fiction is not suitable for a younger audience. This is why I have chosen a pen name for my fiction.
I will eventually start a new WordPress page for my writing under Savannah R James but I will, of course, keep this one for my poetry. Once the page is set up, it is likely that I will take down my supernatural fiction on this page and post it on my paranormal page.
For now, I will leave you with a snippet of a new short story, called The House of Yesterday, which is set on the Kent coast in the UK. I hope you enjoy.
