It has been a while. I have not posted since last year, although it has been less than 2 months since the clock chimed 12 and 2018 began. I wanted to post something special for the New Year as I was hoping that 2018 would be special, exceeding my expectations and being a good year overall. However nothing I tried to write, or film felt right.

Inspiration often strikes me at the most inconvenient times, such as 12AM on school nights before I have to fall asleep. Similarly, last week, I started to write again and messily scribbled down some poems. I decided I liked one enough to share on here, and feel that new poetry is the best blog post to start off the new year with (ignoring the fact that I am about a month and a half late).

One Minute for a Thousand Hours

Lights.

Camera.

No Action.

A delayed reaction

to the slip of paper,

gleaning white.

About to be opened,

flashing to what might

happen.

You are up on stage

in front of a face-filled sea,

but all that matters is that paper

and what could be.

Once it is opened,

it is all over.

That fleeting moment on stage

is all you have to show for.

– Sarah Hesp
