The discussion and creative writing group offers a great opportunity to learn more about poetry and prose, as well as develop creative ideas.
Here is an example of some recent work by Stephen B.
‘The Re-birth of Phoenix’
In silent slumber lies the Golden Bird,
Five hundred years have passed,
And now, awakened to new life
The world awaits its re-creation.
Not alive as we know it,
But machine-like from metal fashioned,
Beats not a heart within its chest
Unlike any other thing that moves.
Within the ancient fire it lies,
An egg of reddish hue, waiting, restless for its cue,
A thunder crack, and something stirs
With rainbow feathers and beak of gold.
Free at last with wings unfolding,
Sweet song from metal throat resounds,
A shooting star bound heavenward
To meet at last its sun companion.
