This month, I’ll be writing a poem a day as part of the NaPoWriMo challenge. I did the early bird poetry prompt earlier today and then decided to try the challenge of writing a poem based on a phrase given to me by the Bibliomancy Oracle.
My phrase was: “If distorts nostalgia, and memory as well.” It’s an excerpt from “If We Never Meet Again This Side of Heaven” by Eric Pankey.
Here is my offering: “Dear Day dreamer…”
Accept your past experiences for what they were
for the lessons taught,
when the reminiscing begins
and in moments of reflections your mind is fraught
with suppositions and wistful desires…
you do your growth a disservice
in the past you dwell,
“if” distorts nostalgia,
