It’s a shame I didn’t get a chance to partake in our Writing 101: Poetry course until the very end.  It would have been a tremendous experience for me, well, it still is (though I only managed to sit and write until DAY 3). 😀 I guess WORK got its toll and defeated the poet inside me during that time.

Currently, I have 22 pending post in my drafts, some of which were for this course. I know it’s TOO LATE but it would be as waste not to share them. So here goes something… 🙂 🙂


In a gaze, a startling meeting of the eyes

Two hearts stopped drumming; a sudden smile

Two hour hands slowed and came to a halt

Two souls collided and shared a divine dance

And in that second, a fleeting moment in time

Forever started and ended at once

Hearts resumed beating; hour hands began ticking

Two souls too frightened, let their chance slip by

Day 4: Seconds

Prompt 4 is a courtesy of a lovely friend, Rosema of A Reading Writer. DANK JE WEL! 🙂

Unimportant as it may seem, a split second can change our lives in ways we can never imagine. So today, write about the basic unit of time, seconds. Reflect on those few seconds when a loved one was in a life-and-death situation. Relive the few seconds when you held your eldest child for the first time. Recount those seconds when you were waiting for big news that was about to change your life.
