Learning your Lesson

#Napowrimo #writeclub #Learning

with a nod to Leanne @ Writeclub for the prompt


Learning begins

as soon as your born

as you’ve got to waddle

across the floor

to get to your soft toys



comes from your elders

touching something hot

if you don’t know what you’re doing

leads to singed little fingers

in ice cold water


One plus One Equals Too

English and Maths a vital skill

creativity with paints and clay and materials

Equally important

If you want to make a shelf, or a bowl or a spoon


Mistakes, they say

a learning experience

particularly in the kitchen arena

no need to put two spoons of spice in – one will do

unless you’re making a fiery dish


Warning Signs – aren’t there for decoration

despite their bright colour

building sites aren’t adventure playgrounds

even if they look like an obstacle course

dares lead to dangerous flights – and the hospital wing
