Rule of Thumb (#NaPoWriMo Day 6)

#NaPoWriMo, Other Poetry Add comments

Hey 🙂

For day six I was prompted to push my comfort zone in regards to where I break the lines in my poem.  Much easier task than yesterday!!

I wrote two poems as a matter of fact, but I liked this one best:

 

RULE OF THUMB

There was a smudge on the long lens;

the accident

looks hazy now

but it’s sharp technicolour in my head.

 

Running on a loop: silent and slowed down and ever so devastating.

 

Every time.

 

Not

frozen:

a fog

obscuring

our

view.

 

In reality:

his eyelids bore my living whorls.

But…

 

here we have

the fingerprint of history.
