Prompt 11 and Poem #11 “My Brand New World” by Ingrid Exner, Half-Marathon, 2020

Once Upon a Time…

As all the stories go,

You are taken

into make believe

before you even know!

 

My imaginary homeland

and land of

all my dreams

would still have all

Four seasons

tho unlikely as

that seems!

 

The changing of the Seasons and,

Dawning of the Day

have far more beauty than

even I can say!

Seeing changing colours is-

pleasure for my eyes!

Summer morphing into Autumn

Adopting new disguise!

 

Perhaps, I’d add more Kindness

and Compassion in this

World! Take away the evil and help

the misunderstood!

I’d cure all Childhood illness and,

Let all children play!

Allowing them to become

adults who are grateful

each and every day!

In a world of lesser pain,

We would all have chance to gain!

  1. Thank you Reena! Right now, with everything that is going on in the world, I like light and I enjoy writing poetry and prose that profile and promise a better way of living . Thank you for your positive comment and encouragement 🙂

    1. Thank you Bhasha! This sort of wrote itself as I was coming close to the end of the half marathon and losing steam… But at this time, my core values swam to the surface…it was revealing for me too!

    1. Thanks Joyce! It is my dreamworld and yes, almost faerytale like. I fear that there will always be evil but we can try to minimize the effects through Kindness and Compassion…I hope!

  2. Thank you! That is sort of my belief…there is always hope. And, in fact there is. We may sometimes have to alter or tweak our perspective (or expectations) a bit but, there is always hope! 🙂

  3. There is a simplicity here that runs deep. It’s full of love, positivism and hope. This art of words, pieced together for a motivation to live a better life, is a refreshing reminder of what poetry should mostly do! You already know why: “In a world of lesser pain, We would all have chance to gain!”
