Venetia wrote this poem after my visit to Gladstone School this year. She was having a cup of tea with her Mum and Nana and was inspired to write it as she waited for her tea to cool down. Lily went for a lightning bolt moment. Both poems sound good and capture a moment perfectly.

The Lightbulb Moment


When thoughts strike

ideas and pictures


A bright light

shines from the rest

like a lightning bolt

shines suddenly

with a picture

and a sound


The lightbulb moment
