Today we round off the Tips for Writers summer edition Folding Mirror poems with the third from Claire Knight.
It was great to see talented poets creating Folding Mirror poems in a top small press poetry and writing magazine, and I hope more poets will try out some FMs in the future.
Grandson’s Gift is a colourful and poignant tale about the beauty of receiving presents from family members.
Thanks to Claire for creating and sharing it, and Wendy Webb of Tips for Writers for allowing its re-use.
he painted me a butterfly,
in bold splodges
of lime green and orange,
and gave it to me with bright eyes and beaming smile.
With lime green and orange,
in bold splodges,
he painted me a butterfly
a beautiful butterfly.
