Continuing responding to the prompts on Australian Children’s Poetry
- Submitted in response to Poetry Prompt #5
June said: I liked that the photograph prompt had creatures on it and it inspired me to think of what it must be like for a caterpillar to change its mode of transport when it transforms. I placed this poem over a photograph of a butterfly. I wanted something about the right length so the photograph and words could balance. It is fun making poem/photograph creations. For playfulness I spelt the word travel out at the end of each line.
I took this photograph at the Botanical Gardens.
As for the last line, my teenage son recently was studying a Dylan Thomas poem so I thought it would be fun to echo some of the lines.
‘Do not go gently into that good night.’
