A Haiku is a poem. Short and sweet But why haiku on a celebrant’s blog page?
Creative writing is essential for this marriage celebrant. Every wedding ceremony begins with a fresh canvas for me.
I love writing a couple’s love story, finding their specialness, and working alongside them to create an individual marriage ceremony.
How to write a ceremony
Imagine this is your wedding planning. You may not know just what you want when we begin. You will get the tools to identify what is important to you. From this we weave a story for your wedding day, not just any old ceremony, a captivating tale that engages you and your guests, and makes the occasion quite unique and yours.
A perfect ceremony
It is not just the perfect wedding dress that makes your day perfect, but a ceremony that is a true reflection of the bride and groom, enjoyable for all the guests and quite memorable.
And so here is part two of an insight into a creative writing workshop by the marvellous leader Glenda O’Sullivan. And a little glimpse of my writing, when I get creative.
Creative writing workshop
It was the end of a day’s creative writing workshop led by creative workshop queen, Glenda. I was delightfully tired. It had been a day of challenge and stimulation.
Glenda’s provocative style and generous gifts made the day deliciously productive. The group had written many words. But the end of the day lent itself to the short and sweet.
Our teacher reintroduced me to the art of haiku; Simple. Short. Structured. Yet freeing. A little like Tango.
I give you two short Haiku, written in the sultry dusk, lazing on the grass.
drumming jazz at night
rain on roof on eyelids closed
night rhythms exposed
broody clouds drift grey
wafting words guiding pencil
sunset smiles on dusk
