Stream of Consciousness Saturday is a blog hop hosted by Linda G. Hill. Thank you for hosting such a unique blog hop.
This week’s topic is “clo”.
I feel like this is a jeopardy category. (no offense…)
I am a fan of poetry. So I’ve written a poem for you. I used to write poetry in high school. Later, I discovered that I don’t really have the patience to read a whole book of poetry. I pick and choose. Because it really does take a vast amount of patience to actually understand what you’re reading. It’s more fun to understand the meaning, otherwise it’s pointless to sit and read. Some poetry doesn’t have any meaning and if you ask the poet what he or she meant, they’ll laugh at you like, I have no idea….so annoying.
That said, I still like writing poetry. But It takes so much time. Funny, writing a novel takes so much longer. Ah well…
Closing in on thirty
is like riding into the sunset
your life has been grand, wonderful, amazing,
or maybe it hasn’t; maybe it’s been a day (a life)
full of trials, of shootouts, of scrounging for sustenance
for acceptance, for peace
maybe the day had been harrowing, but you’ve succeeded
you’ve made it this far, and you’re riding into a beautiful,
gorgeous sunset, like watching God’s angels paint the sky
and only after dusk has fallen, bathing the trail in a deep purple hue,
only as it fades both gradually and all at once
do you realize that you’re about to embark on a terrifying night ride
into the unknown
As per the rules of this unique blog hop, I wrote this without editing in about 5 minutes ish…
Once, I did that same thing in high school, for an English assignment. I busted out a poem in about 15 minutes, and all my classmates were shocked and amazed and the teacher even read it in front of the class. Okay, sorry, don’t mean to brag 🙂
Happy reading 🙂
