#PoetryInMotion Challenge – Field of Dreams


Field of Dreams

Surrounded by a comfortable silence

I was able to lay peacefully

Letting go, from the hustle in everyday life

.
Quietening my mind

To drift off

Safely, into a “Field of Dreams”

.
Through the visions had

I experienced a reconnection

With my inner-self

.
Waking to a freshness of clarity

I throughly needed

And a strength in my resolve…

#NaPoWriMo 2016 Challenge – Day 11

image

Day 11’s challenge via NaPoWriMo Website  was to write a poem a in which you closely describe an object or place, and then end with a much more abstract line that doesn’t seemingly have anything to do with that object or place, but which, of course, really does.

The “surprise” ending to this James Wright Poem could be used as a model for the effect, the NaPoWriMo Website hopes the Challengers can achieve. An abstract, philosophical kind of statement closing out a poem that is otherwise intensely focused on physical, sensory details.

Hope you enjoy my words… Happy reading!

“IRELAND”

Ensnared by the rolling beauty/ as he wanders
So rich and green are your lands/ the traveller states
Unique visions of quiet eloquence abound/ a country’s treasure
Yet history tells a grave tale/ which is hidden beneath an internal unrest of beliefs

#NaPoWriMo 2016 Challenge – Day 9

image

Day 9’s challenge via NaPoWriMo Website  was to write a poem that includes a line that you’re afraid to write.

This might be because it expresses something very personal that makes you uncomfortable – either because of its content (“I always hated grandma”), or because it seems too emotional or ugly or strange (“I love you so much I would eat a cockroach for you”). Or even because it sounds too boring or expected (“You know what? I like cooking noodles and going to bed at 7 p.m.”). But it should be something that you’re genuinely a little scared to say.

This was a hard Challenge… I’m also way behind <yikes> but still hope to finish the month by completing all the Challenges!!!

“Forever”

Today as I wander, in this life so far
I may not be anyone’s forever
Where you can share
All the sweet
Raw
Messy
Beautiful
Scary
And strong times, with another
But one day
Maybe in the next life
I still hope to find it…

#NaPoWriMo 2016 Challenge – Day 10

image

Day 10’s challenge via NaPoWriMo Website was to write a “book spine” poem!

This involves taking a look at your bookshelves, and writing down titles in order (or rearranging the titles) to create a poem.

A lot of my books are on Kindle so I created mine through a different means… Hope you enjoy reading my two efforts!
