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.

Nesting

bluetit

Another year

Bluetits arrive

Cautiously looking

Dewy dawn

Elongated shadows

Flying around

Gingerly stopping

Home needed

Interested now

Just wait

Keyhole spied

Lodge ahead

Makes one’s home

Nesting here

Obviously wary

Putting down roots

Questioning dangers

Resting quietly

Snuggling in

Trusting nature

Unheated house

Vent is a hole

Where are the babies

Yes inside

Zoetic new life.
