Hello! This is the first day starting my 30 Days of Poetry Challenge. In advance- may mess up with some consistency in these first 3 days. I have a lot on my plate and I forgot to plan my days correctly. But I hope you enjoy this! Maybe I’ll even make a playlist of songs I listened to when I made these poems. This is going to be interesting…lets see how it goes! 🙂
Day #1: Write a poem about hellos.
A welcoming smile is brighter than the sun
But the sun brings me a blanket over the night
And when the night greets my eyes
I am hugged to sleep
Headless and Heavy, everyone might be sleeping in
But I make the time to say hello to my consciousness.
People awkwardly make eye contact because it is the normal thing to do
When you see someone in the hallway they find you too
And the sincere wave and smile
Never goes further than that, unless there is more
What was their name again?
After the crowd of introductions and papers
Speakers whom you forget their name….
I embrace your still stature, and together we walk to our respective.
This the welcome that never gets old.
I know your name and I know their names
How great is it to see you again
Headless and heavy, I see the overcast of sleep
And It asks me to be their friend while I can barely hold myself up
My eyes crisscross feet and focus on focusing
Good times roll, and punching media and essays of what comes next
Hands on the side and jeans off
I take it slowly and lay still.
