Something New – Poetry Journal

When Rio suggested a poetry journal excitement ran through me with such force, I realised that I had to give it a go.I know I like to write a poem on a daily basis and it is often very random. Here was an opportunity to write a poem which might reflect my mood, where I am at, what my thoughts are on a given day and what made me write a poem.

So here goes, Something New to get my teeth into. So today’s poem came from the inspiration of a surfer who I chatted to on twitter. Mad I know. I don’t surf and never have done, however he made me feel that I wanted more to life. I wanted perfection each day, what ever that may be.

Blue Skies as far as the eye can see

Surf rolling, high crests rising

Sun sparkling on the waters edge

Surfers riding the waves

Hope paddling out,

shock as the wave is caught,

Amazed as each wave is ridden,

Ecstasy as they glide with the water,

Disbelief of the power of the wave,

freedom, speed with the breaking surf,

Spiritual feeling, at one with nature,

One foot in the sand

one in the water

waiting for the perfect wave.

Conversations of fish

So today Napowrimo’s prompt was to write a conversation. I have chosen fish….

fish

.

The red tail, he’s an interloper

Is he really? how do you know?

Well we have been here for ages

Ages, have we are you sure?

Yes, well the plants are different

What do you mean?

The plants have grown

They might be new?

Well he’s an interloper

He’s certainly bossy

Did he pick a fight with you?

Oh yes, I shot under the stone

That a good hiding place

They watched the red tail,

He glided through the tank

You know, I think he’s sad

I think he needs a friend

Shall we be his friend?

We could give it a go

Do you want to be friends?

They asked the red tail

He flicked his tail shooting round the tank

Oh yes, I really would like friends

I have been very lonely

And the little fish were delighted

They wanted everyone to be happy in their little box.
