It's Poetry Friday, and Margaret Simon from Reflection of the Teche has the round-up.
Different times write different chapters, but all are written in my book of life. At times, I anticipate the end of the day, wishing I could erase the choices I made, the words I said, and the actions I took.
Other days, I linger in the day, wishing it could last just a little bit longer.
But each day moves on while adding another chapter.
I like the way nonets work, and this is lovely. I love your metaphor in that first line, LeighAnne: "I pull up the covers on today". The end of a day always means reflection, doesn't it? Have a happy weekend!ReplyDelete
Lovely. Some pages we wish we could just skip over, and others we wish we could linger on forever. :-)ReplyDelete
I love the photo and the way the poem frames it.ReplyDelete
"I pull up the covers on today" - that is my favorite time to reflect and give thanks. Beautiful poem. =)ReplyDelete
You made wonderful use of the form; it settles in like the day you wanted to cover and keep.ReplyDelete
I've not tried a nonet. After reading yours, I'd like to. It is a lovely way to linger over a good day.ReplyDelete
Isn't it magic when form and content click so perfectly?ReplyDelete
