As I’ve shared before I am writing a new book I want to have published by this summer, A Small Book of Whimsy. They are actually having a contest at Amazon titled, Amazon Breakthrough Novel Award. I am considering entering, despite hearing others say it’s a bad deal here at this blog, The Writer’s Alley. Basically, it’s up to you. For someone who has little to no traffic for their books, any traffic is a good deal. And so, hope me the best for my book.
And with that, a “Good morning” to you!
Now, here are a couple of poems that I hope you will like. Please feel free to comment on this bit of free verse:
…of One Day
This is not what was expected, I am sure
You were buying a poetry book… maybe?
I’m sitting here writing this whole thing in my small loft
There is this large and fantastical world just outside my window
You see, I live in a modest abode on the second floor
I watch the outdoors and life outside my window
Flow, like the aesthetic fountain placed in the center of the court
Time passes for me as I sit here
Does it move as slowly for you?
Yes, I think it does
The world passes away and unfolds
Do you live for the day, as a good stoic?
Or, maybe you only live for tomorrow and the next time?
I think maybe your mind isn’t always in rhyme
As it is, for mine
We live for our savings, our tomorrows, and one days
We live losing the now in this fog and this glaze
Of… one day, yes, we’ll do this one day
Sometimes, are the best times
We always want this to stay
We get comfortable in our present
And then nothing can change
It’s a steady refrain
We wake up and then sleep
We sleep and then wake up
Deja Vu is our day time
And then Deja Vu is our night
We can call it a gift
We can call it a plight
We can call it a slow death
We can call it slow life
But it’s always the same
The only one change
Is the view from up high?
Or low, down beneath?
We can always look at our world
