NaPoWriMo 13/30 Memories

Memories are like openings
the rain slamming against them
as you stare absently at the visions
following the trails
you turn from them
casting shadows over your mind
trying to back away from them
after more than twenty years
of extensive flashbacks
to nothing, no where and no one.

A replacement poem

Pick a common noun for a physical thing, for example, “desk” or “hat” or “bear,” and then pick one for something intangible, like “love” or “memories” or “aspiration.” Then Google your tangible noun, and find some sentences using it. Now, replace that tangible noun in those sentences with your intangible noun, and use those sentences to create (or inspire) a poem.

I used ‘window’ and ‘memory’.



I like to think I'm a story teller. I love stories. I believe the world is filled with stories just waiting to be told and learned. I enjoy travelling down the road less travelled, with my iPhone and journal in each hand. Here you'll find all my poetic musings... Enjoy!

Thanks for reading! What did you think?
