The Poem I’d Never write

30 Day Poetry Challenge, Poetry

30 Day Poetry Challenge, Day 6: Title your page “The Poem I’d never write,” and go from there.

Beneath me earth’s hard bed contours my back
I gaze upward
My sky crisscrosses with leaves and branches
The wind lightly stroke my face
And moderately chills my bare skin
Ducks wander close, to quack a hello
My eyes close and the birds sing a soothing melody
My heart calms
Pen in hand, my breaths become long and heavy
Thoughts provoke me with every chest rise and fall
But they never go to paper
Because they’re the words I’d never write.
