My Mobile Writing Space

February 15, 2015

 

Mobile Writing Space

‘My Writing Space’ was the title of an assignment set some years ago while I was taking an M.A. in Creative Writing at Teesside University.

I had no problem visualising my ideal writing space but came to the surprise conclusion that it would work best for me if it was on wheels.

So here it is, my mobile writing space, ready for putting my ‘words on wheels.’

And the first thing I wrote about was rain!

Perhaps it was the sense of connection from sleeping in the motorhome overnight or an echo of Hone Tuwhare’s famous poem Rain, or a mixture of the two that produced this vertical haiku…

… which works much better on graph paper.

And for those of you who perceive rain horizontally…

pitter patter pulsed

pelted precipitated

patter pitter passed

And if you have not come across Hone Tuwhare, whose writing space or ‘crib’ is being restored at Kaka Point, Otago, you can find out more from http://honetuwhare.org.nz or http://www.poetryarchive.org

    I really like “your writing space”. Wish I have one. I hope you don’t mind I make a copy of your car and display it in my blog.
