Discover Poems by Ruby

This site is a celebration of Ruby's love for writing poetry

Welcome to Ruby's poetry blog! Ruby is a poet living in the seaside town of Brighton. My name is Rachel and I am helping Ruby to share her work and hopefully inspire others to enjoy poetry.

One of the tools that Ruby finds useful sometimes when she's writing poetry is to label the 5 senses.

She draws around my hand on some paper and then writes Hear, Smell, Taste,Touch and Look on the fingers and the subject of the poem in the middle of the hand. So for a poem about curry, Ruby wrote "I smell spices" ..."I hear popping".Before long a poem

takes shape!
