Journal 11-25-20120001

Today’s challenge on Poetic Asides was to write a poem that was opposite to another written this month. At first this presented a problem, because I could think of no opposites, then I thought of the gathering prompt and came up with separate… Hence the following poem.

Separate Ways

Let us separate
Going our own directions
Because we do need
To reach beyond each other
Becoming independent.

We can live alone,
Apart from society,
Isolated from others,
But that would be unhealthy.

Being together
Is no doubt quite wonderful,
But we need to craft
Our space in the universe
Distinct from one another.

We become detached
Uninvolved in the lives of
Our fellows who move
In circles separate to
Our simple revolutions.

We need some distance
To develop as single
Autonomous people, who
Can function well on our own.

I am grateful:

1.   I did not really miss my contacts today.
2.   There were enough leftovers for supper.
3.   I did not have to cook.
4.   Alex still talks to me at times.
5.   We had Mucinex on hand.

I hope you have enjoyed a relaxing Sunday. Mine has been blessedly peaceful. Now I want to challenge you to do something that engages your creativity. Use the brilliant imagination God gifted you with to create a poem, story, journal entry, photograph, painting, or anything else that moves you. Don’t just sit there making excuses, get yourself busy.

As a prompt, write a poem, story, or journal entry using the concept of separation. If you are a visual artist, illustrate separation. I have a feeling this will not be difficult. So much is separate about our lives. Leave a link to your work in the comments below if you use this prompt.

Thank you for visiting my blog. It is an honor and privilege to have you spend time here. Should you have thoughts, suggestions, or criticism, please leave me a comment. If you enjoyed what you experienced, you might want to follow Chronicles.
