I’ve been seeing lots of posts about NAPOWRIMO (National Poetry Writing Month). Though my last few monthly challenges have note gone well, (I don’t know if I’ve EVER completed one) I do want to recognize April as National Poetry month.
I mentioned yesterday that I’ve been going through old writings. I found a bunch of poems that never made it to my computer. The following is from a college poetry class, about an object in the room (I chose the wall outlet).I sit
on the wall,
unnoticed until needed
watching with slotted eyes.
I take note of every action;
You’re more honest when alone
but if you knew I was watching,
would you be afraid?
You believe I am powerless
unless you make me otherwise
but quite the opposite is true.
