a patchwork of a day
sewn from behind the glass
sometimes in solitude, sometimes flowing with life
sometimes in black and white, sometimes with hues amass
sorting through, zooming in zooming out
gaining perspectives of what is worthy and what need not be saved
from wrong angles pursued, or the distance gaining clout
to getting lost out of focus, an abstract of view
or too sharp of lines, unable to see beyond their course
she listens to each one with great care letting the vision, the art come through
flipping sometimes slowly sometimes anxious to see
the day in its glory, painted moments to have
deleting those unwanted, those that offer no pleasantry
I wrote this for this first day of #Napowrimo . I may participate every day or maybe not since I’m still having to work daily but I love the way it pushes the imagination and gives us something to look forward to and create every day.
Today’s assignment was to write a self-portrait poem on which you make a specific action a metaphor in your life. I chose the act of seeing the world through my camera, capturing images, relating it to the perspectives and choices we make in life.
