23rd November 11am Taster Session Blog Challenge

Welcome to the blog post challenge.

Below is an example of a blog post written by Pie.

A Rainbow of Masks


I wore the blue mask and saw

A single eye staring back,

the sky waiting patiently

and a kingfisher diving.


I wore the yellow mask and saw

a primrose forging promises,

a canary singing lullabies

and a shred of lemon tingling your tongue.


I wore the red mask and saw

a field of poppies,

one fiery eye fidgeting

and a tomato peeling back its skin.


I wore the white mask and saw

a barn owl’s face,

a blank and patient page

and a clown’s mask of anonymity.


I wore the ebony mask and saw,

the midnight cat pause,

charcoal fingers fumbling

and a cloak made of shadows.


I wore the green mask and saw

a tuft of mint,

an emerald catching the light

and a cactus surviving.

  • Teachers: This field will become a "tag" so it is important that your whole class writes your school name in the same way. For example, it is perfectly ok to shorten "primary school" to ps or PS, but everyone must write it in the same way. It's a good idea to agree on a tag before filling in the form.
