SOL Tuesday - Perpetual Evolution


Slice of Life Tuesday -- Tuesday May 9, 2017
"Perpetual Evolution"

Yesterday, I was observing the outdoors at different times of the day. Sometimes I was outside, going between my car and work; sometimes I was inside, noticing things through a window. I wrote down my thoughts at the end of the day, and ended up with this poem:

Perpetual Evolution 
Today's Day:
Bright beautiful sunshine,
Light blue cloudless sky,
Crisp cool temperatures,
Pleasant breezes,
Birds chirping,
Busy people
Going about life.

Day becomes evening:
Slanted sunshine,
Light blue cloudless sky,
Long shadows forming,
Chilly breezes,
Pale white moon rising in the Eastern sky,
Sun sinking slowly in the Western sky,
Brightness ebbing,
Birds quieting,
Busy people
Slowing down.

Evening becomes night:
Darkness overtaking everything,
Star-peppered sky,
Round moon glowing,
Breezes becoming still,
Cold air drifting in, settling in hollows,
Busy people
Slumbering.

Night becomes tomorrow's 
Day....
Becomes....

  1. I loved the ending of your poem. Since it's raining here, it was nice to imagine a sunny day like the one you saw yesterday. I also liked your repetition of "busy people". I'm glad you were able to take a break from your busy life and notice the world around you.
