Today I decided to do something that I do not usually do.
I wanted to share some of the work from a class I am currently taking.
Here are some short poems I wrote in Liz Lamoreux's
This is from Week 1 - Entitled, Just Write ...
4 Prompts Given To Start ...
I Begin ... I Am ... I Stand Alone ... I See a Man
I Begin …
Each morning with a cup of coffee
Giving my brain a jump start
Preparing me for the day ahead
Usually a traffic filled ride
Grateful for good music
Thoughts swirling in my head
Wondering what the day will bring
Thinking of weekend plans ahead
I Am …
A modern day woman with an old soul
Seeker of authenticity in all things
One who continues to believe
A wide eyed explorer
In search of the next best photo
Or words that will resonate
After I am gone
I Stand Alone ...
With my unique ways of thinking
In a world with no steadfast rules
At times, in a room full of people
With my feet firmly planted
Surrounded by light
With no apologies and no regrets
I See a Man …
Near the water's edge
Who relates to my story
He shares his own truth
Both heartbreaking stories
A chance meeting
Two souls collided
One car pulled away
Followed with one tear
I enjoy writing shorter poems with meaning. Please let me know if you find yourself doing the same to capture your thoughts of the day or of any moment ... Love hearing from you!
