#NaNoWriMo & #NovPAD Day 28: Reclaiming My Time

Reclaiming the Light by Maria L. Berg 2021

For today’s images, I crumpled up the photos that I tore up for my visual poetry and let them reclaim the light in the mirror world. I love the way the lights reflect off the crumpled glossy photo paper.

Today’s prompt is to write a slow down poem.

To Reclaim My Time

To reclaim it,
first it must be taken,
or in an undesirable state,
displaying wrong or improper
conduct to be recalled from,
before rescued, subdued, or tamed
My time runs wild and wanton
How will I demand to obtain its return
and regain possession, to slow
its exponential speed, and hold it still,
still while I breathe
still while I think
no ticking, no tocking
no hands, or faces, or digits
only the hum of the space heater
and the warm, soft, micro-fiber blanket
holding me to the couch
and plush blue socks
holding me to the thick carpet
and the wine, and the wine couch
cushions, supporting my weight,
seconds, minutes worth of seconds
squirm under those cushions, but
I won’t let them escape
eventually they will tire themselves out.
