I am delighted to share my poem, Take Time, is published at Free Verse Revolution!
Free Verse Revolution shares writing from around the world, celebrating the unique perspective of individual writers. I am honored to be part of the collective of monthly poems this month!
As I am currently working on putting together a poetry book with the intention of publishing it, I find my style of writing can change. For my book, I was inexplicably drawn to writing about the places and people where I live so I decided to roll with it. Take Time is the first poem I share here that has hints of the voice I discovered while working on my book in it.
I was inspired to write this poem walking outside one night. It was a cool night that seemed to border the ending heat of summer and the coming chill of fall and, as I was standing under the night sky with nothing on my mind, the new moon rose above the trees ringed by light that was so yellow, I instantly thought of dawn.
Take Time is also a gentle reminder to myself not to rush the writing but to enjoy the process and cherish the self-discovery it brings.
I invite you to enjoy Take Time, maybe cherish it, and discover something new.
On nights when the moon
Rises above the trees
Haloed by sunlight
You see your own eyes
In the indigo sky
