Roue De Paris (Geleen)

Welcome to Poetics everyone!

My name is Claudia Schoenfeld and– wait– can you see me–?

I’m sitting on top of that Ferris wheel and wow… you have a great view from up here.

So when was the last time, you enjoyed some carefree hours on a fun fair?

We always had one in spring and in autumn in the town where I grew up – a rather small one – both – town and fair – and I’m not at all a big hero when it comes to roller coasters and thrill rides either but I do love the scents… sausages, popcorn, gingerbread, caramelized almonds… on the Jahrmarkt (that’s how we call it in german). I also often took my dog with me when I went there and we spent the time walking, smelling, watching people and just enjoying the moment and the atmosphere..

So today, we want to write fun fair poems and there’s a wide variety of possibilities…

Take us on a bumper car ride with you or on a metaphorical merry-go-round or tell us about that roller coaster ride that almost made you lose your mind (i had one or two of these…wanted to get out in about 12 meters height…and good i was belted)…however… make it funny, thoughtful, wild, reflective… wide open space…



But oh– one thing before you start– take a candy apple– just for kindling the magic a bit– smiles
