Her face

 

Her face, a face I’ll never forget.

A friendly face, she speaks with a calm voice

and has unforgettable smile.

A smile that will bring a smile on your face too.

She has a light glow when she laughs.

That imagine never leaves my mind.

*Just something that came to my head*

My Calendar

Do you use a calendar?

Keep track of birthdays, special days, doctor appointments.

Do you count the days when you’re going on vacation?

I wish I could do that.

My calendar is blank. Just fill with the month,year, the days.

I stare at it wondering when I’ll get that phone call.

When that day come?  Will it come on Friday the 13?

Maybe two weeks after Friday the 13.

The phone call for a job interview.

The phone call to notify and offer you that job position.

I stare at my calendar wondering when that day will come.

 

 

Writing 101, Poetry : Farewell

Doesn’t mean goodbye forever

We will cross path again

I don’t know when, but I know I see you again

Don’t be sad or shed a tear

I’ll always be there with you

In your heart, in your dreams, and in our memories we had together.

 

Write a poem about a farewell today: perhaps this image may bring back memories of loved ones who passed, or revive memories of those that departed from our lives. Or you could focus on the more mundane, but still powerful moments of your daily goodbye rituals, whether it’s a friend, partner, or member of your family.

Writing 101, Poetry: Camouflage

The issues are camouflage

But what do you see?

Probably not the same as what I see.

Camouflage with racism the denial of reality of this world.

Or is it me whom is blind and can’t see right through the camouflage.

 

“Camouflage is a game we all like to play, but our secrets are as surely revealed by what we want to seem to be as by what we conceal.” — Russell Lynes

For today’s poem, take inspiration from camouflage — you may apply it in any way you like, whether you write about visual or social dissimulation, or focus on the way we hide our myriad emotions, actions, and reactions. What would be your ultimate smokescreen, concealment, or mask?
