Creative Writing before and after
Even the birds have fled to a much warmer, more welcoming country. Silence hovers in the misty air and, apart from my heavy crackling steps on the lightly covered leaves, no sound can be heard. No twitters or tweets. No laughing, no crying. Just endless, eerie silence. Icicles clink together like nature’s own beautiful music.
Longingly, the elegant thin branches reach for the stone-grey clouds, which fill every crack in the sky. Other plants, such as wilting flowers and dusky-green bushes are delicately decorated with frosty-white snowflakes; they shimmer and shine in the early morning sun.
My lips turn blue and I am becoming a shivering dog, who has just taken a dip in the sea. Teeth chattering, I wrap the shawl, which is draped around me, even tighter. Despite me wearing the cosiest, warmest gloves, my hands are being nipped brutally by the relentless freezing weather.
What do our parents say?
“Christos got a Headteacher’s award for his writing today. Gobsmacked! Now, if that isn’t down to your teaching, I don’t know what is.”
Pana, mum to Christos
“What a fantastic set of lessons. Bella‘s writing has come on immeasurably in such a short time!”
