Creativity for Life
Shek Lei Catholic Secondary School Students
This is a collection of poems created by a group of students in Hong Kong.
Their task was to create a 5-line poem on any subject of their choice but stay within the format and metre prescribed. The subjects and issues they chose were wide-ranging: trees, love, water, animals, food, anger, fire, stars ...
They experienced tremendous satisfaction in using their right brains, being truly creative and making something unique; completely of their own. And they revealed such awareness and sensitivity to the subjects that I decided an anthology of their work should be produced. Vonnie Boston
I am a writer, artist, business journalist, publisher and educator. I have juggled the esoteric with the mainstream throughout East and West for many years after starting out in New Zealand. "How About That" was created in response to a request for an artistic interpretation of the genesis of the 2008 Olympics in China. The resultant work was displayed via media art in a gallery in Beijing at the time. And presented at a convention in 2009 at Fengshan. Creativitiy and right brain thinking are my areas of research and interest. "Creativity for Life" is the product of working with some typical young students in Hong Kong who once encouraged to use their creativity proved how valuable they will be as leaders of the future.
