Time Lord

Clock faces

Don’t let any moment slip by

Cus hours tend to fly

Seconds march on

Til life is gone

And the clock hands can’t be delayed

Minutes fade

The hourglass runs

No past reruns

Your life’s chronology is now

Present avow

Future gain

Not live in vain.

Hold On Tight

Girl hanging on to dandelion blowing in the wind

Dont let your dreams slip away

And fall through the cracks of life

Expect the unexpected and hold tight

Look at each day with new eyes

Keep your future plans alive

Dont let your dreams slip away

There’ll always be imperfections

Trying to crush dreams until they crumble

And fall through the cracks of life

So if you stumble and fall, rise up

Begin again, grasp your dreams

Expect the unexpected and hold tight

Falling Through The Cracks

Suggested poetry form: Cascade

Cascade, a form created by Udit Bhatia, is all about receptiveness, but in a smooth cascading way like a waterfall. The poem does not have any rhyme scheme; therefore, the layout is simple. Say the first verse has three lines. Line one of verse one becomes the last line of verse two. To follow in suit, the second line of verse one becomes the last line of verse three. The third line of verse one now becomes the last line of verse four, the last stanza of the poem. See the structure example below:

a/b/c, d/e/A, f/g/B, h/i/C

To make the Cascade an even longer poem, use more lines in verse one. For example, if verse one has 6 lines, the poem must have seven stanzas so that each line of verse one is reused as a refrain in each following stanza (a cascading effect).

Word Prompts:

unexpected, imperfection, slipping,

with new eyes, begin again

Monotonous Motion

Treadmills at the gym

Questioning my purpose

Walking everyday

And yet I’m going nowhere

On the treadmill of life

Need to stop and get off

That sad revolving belt

Get out in the real world

Find new paths to walk on

New voices to listen

To, and new faces to see

Realize I’m in control

Of where my feet step

I need to choose wisely

And plan future paths

Wanderlust

Winding road

Do you have a plan in place?

Or are you plain wandering?

Just crusin’ thru life,

Taking any road you find,

Looking for shortcuts

Hoping to go somewhere.

An aimless wayfarer

Never seeking direction

Stuck in the vast maze of life

Choka

If you don’t know where you are going any road can take you there. —Lewis Carrol

Realistic Dreaming

Dreaming, girl on the moon, hot air balloons, sky

In your search for a way to live your dream

Make sure its better than what you’ve got

Before you leave the pond and swim upstream

In your search for a way to live your dream

Make sure its not just an empty scheme

Promising you somethings that are not

In your search for a way to live your dream

Make sure its better than what you’ve got
