Happy National Poetry Month: April!
Today’s prompt: courtesy of Robert Lee Brewer ‘Poetic Asides’: write a distance poem
Let’s get on with it!
What is my point of no return
if I don’t know where I’m going?
How far is this race to be run
while life’s scenery races by,
blurred and distant?
When can I rest
and lay on my back
staring at the clouds,
feeling the breeze on my face
and the cool grass on my back?
Why am I in a race that can’t be won
and everyone finishes last?
Time to stop.
Time to rest.
Time to give up on winning
and enjoy the scenery of life.
