DP English Language and Literature HL students in Grade 11 have been studying the poetry of Sylvia Plath. Students mimicked her style by writing a pastiche.

Why does it keep happening?
The jaggering awakening
As if in the morning at 6
That brings you out of the relaxed mindset of 

The wind howling
The air calming
You can almost hear the waves crashing
And then it stops.

A seaborne invasion.
The wind now a threat
An end to the relaxed mindset

 and all the peace: gone.
Was it necessary?
Tunnel vision
like a telescope

And I have continue riding
With the threatening wind
