A Blog Post? A Poem? Who Knows.

Recently I have not been writing that much poetry, but the other day I had a little burst of creativity and wrote whatever you would call the collection of words below me. Since it was a first time in a while that I had written something I thought I would share. Here is a bit of writing that you could probably call a poem that is very much a work-in-progress.

 

I see like a camera.

 

The little things catch your eye.

Naturally normal, borderline boring.

 

Then, a change in perspective.

 

An idea in focus.

 

Suddenly the leaves on the trees

are not what they are

but what they could be.

 

The bright wall splattered with paint is

an escape from reality.

 

The people walking by are not simply that,

but the stars of short stories

captured in RAW format.

 

A flick of a wrist,

a hint of a smile.

 

Red scarf in the wind,

Converse on her feet,

a look of wonder and fear

both trying to compete.

 

Someone’s movement and magic

captured in time,

ready to keep going

if we use our mind’s eye.

World Poetry Day

“Poetry is language at its most distilled and most powerful.” – Rita Dove

In case you did not know, it is World Poetry Day! Today we celebrate all of the past, present, and future poets along with their work. Poetry is a big part of society as it is a form of art that can bring to light many different issues, and it also helps people to be expressive in an interesting and entertaining way.

Put some time aside and pick up a book, either to read someone else’s written creations or to try and come up with your own.

I know what I will be writing, as well as reading…
