On Walking – #NaPoWriMo20 – Day 16

#NaPoWriMo 2020, Other Poetry Add comments



The prompt for Day 16 was:

Pick a person, place, or thing you love, and praise it in the most effusive way you can.

So I thought about what I am pining for in this lockdown situation, and I wrote about that:


I love you!

My brain-cells firing

In infinite directions.


The majesty of your forgiveness!

The clarity you foster!

The rewiring you encourage!


The feeling of escape when I embrace you!

And yet:

You always bring me closer to myself.


Your peace envelops me.

You grace refocuses me.


I’m always shown

Something that I need.


Your stories are endless,

Your lessons are always timely.

Oh! How I miss

Your silence,


And space!


My wonderful muse:

Always there

(Until you weren’t)


My companion throughout my late teens,

My refuge in these adult woes.


A place to breathe,

To ponder,

To splice theories;

And reposition shards of shattered self-care.


Oh! How I miss

Your serenity,

Your colour and company!


Until we meet again –

Please save some steps for me…?


So, tell me: are you missing long walks by yourself as much I am?! 😉

Stay safe, big hugs, and I’ll see you for prompt 17!
