I got the idea of writing (or is it compiling) a found poem from the lines of my 10 favourite posts from Michelle W’s post on this week’s Discover Challenge – Retrospective. I will list these posts at the end of this piece. It is my effort to gather all the strands of 2016 in a fun way.
From floor to ceiling
Diamonds, emeralds and pearls
All mine…or a dream?
The neighbours are having a party
their voices starting to sound hale and hearty,
Alcohol induced I have no doubt,
I hope they will not start to shout.
My quiet and serene Saturday night is out of the window,
I drown out the volume as their voices reach a crescendo.
All of a sudden it goes quiet!
The music and voices no more a riot!
Car engines start up, tyres squeal,
After the cacophony, the silence that follows feel surreal.
