Snakes are like rainbows–free download for educators.
My poem Snakes are like rainbows was first published in The School Magazine in April 2003.
At the time, I was a beginning teacher, and I was lying. I hated snakes. But I didn’t want to pass on my fear of one of nature’s creatures, so I challenged myself to think about snakes in a different way.
I was also thinking of my connection to Country—as a white woman living on stolen lands of the Kaurna people. Something I was super aware of, working with Nunga kids at the time.
Hello, and Happy February. I’m pleased to have a playscript up at Drama Notebook (.com). It’s based on the Greek myth of Clytie, a water nymph who tragically became a sunflower, set to mourn for eternity over unrequited love.
What a brilliant early Christmas present. My poem about pirate seagulls won a mention in Jackie Hosking’s Spring Poetry Competition. It’s a rhyming poem written for children. Thanks so much to Jackie for the opportunity to strut my rhyming stuff.
