2020 Hour 6: Perfect Day

2020 Hour 6: Perfect Day

 

Time-Infinite

My wrist watch, high on something sassy and chilling out

Using its hands to knit a sweater for the sky

And giving the atomic clock the finger.

 

Weather-Cold

Breathe in, blow out the chilled air

My bare hands ice packs that I hold to my cheeks

To remember that Iā€™m alive.

 

Activity-Walking

My feet have mapped out the city

Footprints repeated through the maze of blocks

Treading each like friends who meet, hug, and depart.

 

Status-Solitude

Quiet is both my companion and shadow

Broached occasionally by a cacophony of my thoughts

Which walk with me arm in arm.

  1. There are so many beautiful images in this poem and so many of these resonate with me. I fell in love with the first stanza and your watch hands knitting the sky. Beautiful imagery! I am a wild walker so, your stanza about walking…”Active walking/ My feet have mapped out the city…” really resonated with me and touched my soul! Beautiful work!
