Let’s try an ekphrastic poem today. What does this photo represent for you? I can’t wait to read your interpretations.
Schedule Me Some Relaxation
People all across the nation
talk about their relaxation
catching up on TV shows
baking cookies and eating dough
Netflix Disney all the rage
when I find time I turn the page
but that is usually when
it’s time to sleep and sleeping wins
Now make no mistaking this
I find the time for walking bliss
but when it comes to relaxing
my day’s are full of many things
Nonetheless this lesson’s true
always take some time for you
even if it’s helping other souls
being good to yourself is an important goal
Today’s Prompt was to write a relaxation poem. Hope I did it justice!
It’s time to mellow out for another week of staying home, at least for many of us. Let’s write a relaxation poem. It could be about relaxing, what you like to do to relax, observations about relaxing or even anti-relaxation. It is up to you!
Every drum beat
as the trumpet cries
to my soul
keeps my pulse in rhythmic flow
Stopping short for the moments
which take my breath away
and flowing with the rhythm
tapping my feet in time
As my shoulders move
dancing in my seat
throbbing heart of joy
pleasures at the beats
This is what music does
capturing rhythm in my soul
enriching heart flow
taking my breath away
and bringing it back
Today’s poem is in response to this Prompt.
Let’s write a poem to this music from Herb Alpert – “Rise” What comes to mind with this music? Or perhaps a poem about what it means to rise up. Or maybe a poem about your favorite musician. The possibilities are endless! Of course, please share what you write.
