#PoetryInMotion Challenge – Field of Dreams

Field of Dreams

Surrounded by a comfortable silence

I was able to lay peacefully

Letting go, from the hustle in everyday life

Quietening my mind

To drift off

Safely, into a “Field of Dreams”

Through the visions had

I experienced a reconnection

With my inner-self

Waking to a freshness of clarity

I throughly needed

And a strength in my resolve…

#NaPoWriMo 2016 Challenge – Day 11


Day 11’s challenge via NaPoWriMo Website  was to write a poem a in which you closely describe an object or place, and then end with a much more abstract line that doesn’t seemingly have anything to do with that object or place, but which, of course, really does.

The “surprise” ending to this James Wright Poem could be used as a model for the effect, the NaPoWriMo Website hopes the Challengers can achieve. An abstract, philosophical kind of statement closing out a poem that is otherwise intensely focused on physical, sensory details.

Hope you enjoy my words… Happy reading!




Ensnared by the rolling beauty/ as he wanders
So rich and green are your lands/ the traveller states
Unique visions of quiet eloquence abound/ a country’s treasure
Yet history tells a grave tale/ which is hidden beneath an internal unrest of beliefs
