Where’s Normal?

Multicolored leaves

No Normal doesn’t live here

Guess it really never did

So don’t wait for it to appear

No normal doesn’t live here

And tis a word you’ll not hear

From this quite abnormal kid

No normal doesn’t live here

Guess it really never did

Triolet

#IArtDaily Day 25 Prompt: “Normal”, doesn’t live here anymore.

Embracing the abnormality of the creative life which is often unconventional, unusual, unique, and never mediocre.

Although I most often use forms in my poetry, I think the abnormality in it is that it many times it isn’t true conformity, and for me that’s ok because it’s my own take on traditional that’s abit irregular

One Among Many

One Oak Leaf among many Maple leaves--Senryu Cascade poem
Original Poetry and Photograph by Leona J. Atkinson ©2015

As I was walking to my car I noticed the many leaves scattered all across the parking lot.  Their colors vividly showed against the black pavement. The leaves seemed to all be from the colorful Maple trees that were planted nearby—except—right by my car I noticed one lonely Oak leaf lying in among all the Maple leaves.  Thus, an inspiration for today’s poem.
