Pass the Poem 2014

Journal Entry: Tue Oct 14, 2014, 7:49 AM
Tumblr l Facebook l Twitter l DLR

After a bit of back and forth and a few delays, the Pass the Poem is completed.


The Poem
Staring into the sun, my mind binds itself to the rays
bending the supple limbs in search for celestial ghosts.
As the curtain swings to cover us, our secrets are safe.

I wonder, will time pass before the sun will again breach defenses?
I have often lost the minutes betwixt night and day,
and the kaleidoscope crepusculum colours me sightless
Leaving me in a daze

The air tastes of honeysuckle and mildew, strangely sweet,
reminding me of memories, and promises that I could not keep.
Moments lost, and sight be found,

I miss the moon, it's subtle glow amongst the dark.
Fantastic swirling galaxies haunt my waking dreams
or have they taken over my conscious thought?

Nothing is certain, safe for the minutes swirling by
like the ripples on a stone skipping pond,
but all stones must sink eventually.

With the stones my secrets drown,
safe and content if only for a moment.

I am a poet. I have put my hand to other things, but I have always been a poet.

My personal writings are angsty and sometimes dark, but my professional pieces are a bit lighter. I am categorized, like many, as "undefined". I used to consider myself a literalist - simple metaphors where necessary, but primarily, painting easy to understand pictures in easy to read pieces, but my life is changing and so is my voice. Who knows where I will end up next, if anywhere.

I started writing before I knew how to properly spell at 7 and it has suckt with me throughout my adult life.

I wrote my first poem about my new sister at 7 and finished my first children's story at 8. I was published at 9 and dropped off until I was 13.

I had my first adult publishing experience at 19 when a piece of mine was inked in a local paper. I continued writing methodically and religiously until my mid 20's where my personal life took precedence and I had to set my pen down. I did not write again for several years.

I am now in my 30's and the lit bug is secured with two hands. I will work diligently to ensure it stays where it is.

How's life treating you? I took a full-time job with a customer care center recently so my time in regards to writing has become almost non-existent. Miss chatting with you and hope all is well.

Life is treating me well as of recently. I have been working my arse off for months and months, but it is paying off. I miss writing though, and try to fit time in whenever possible... hopefully a lot more when I'm finally done with my further education. :) 

I'm glad to hear you found a job that pays (apart from writing)! :P I have been on the LitRecog chat for the last couple of days, but it appears to have been abandoned.. :(

I hope to hear from you more often. :hug:

I am able to write at work. I take product calls for a grocer answering recipe questions and taking complaints about the products. I have no free time anymore, or so it seems. I started a book, but I am not sure it will get anywhere as every time I have a coherent thought is it interrupted by the phone. :(

Drop me a line every so often to let me know you are alive and well and I will try to do the same. I think I have lost track of nearly everyone on here. :(
