Snapshot

I never really read or wrote poetry growing up, unless it was for an English class. But I’ve recently been reintroduced to it through my friend Vincent. Through him, I recently joined a poetry group on Facebook. The group has a weekly #PoetryPromptChallenge that members can use as motivation to write a poem. This week’s challenge is called Snapshot (prompt written by group admin narglesbooksandpoetry):

Snapshot - (noun) - an informal photograph taken quickly, typically with a small handheld camera
Write a poem, a quick poem as if it were a snapshot of your life. Imagine a polaroid camera, but instead of spitting out a picture, it spits out words describing everything as if you were blind. I challenge. Do you accept?

I wrote the following poem. It wasn’t *that* quick, though. It definitely took longer than a polaroid picture would take to develop. But, this might be my first proper attempt at a poem. I’m kinda proud of it. I hope you like it too.

I wake, I rise.
The morning brings hope.
I eat, I shower.
The water brings warmth.
I bike, I walk.
The office brings routine.
I walk, I bike.
The house brings relief.
I smile, I laugh.
The joy brings life.
I hurt, I cry.
The pain brings value.
I sleep, I dream.
The night brings solace.
I think, I feel.
The love brings purpose.
