November 1, 2013 2013 November Pad Chapbook Challenge

2013 November Pad Chapbook Challenge:  Day 1, Robert Lee Brewer's Poetic Asides Blog
http://www.writersdigest.com/whats-new/2013-november-pad-chapbook-challenge-day-1
For today’s prompt, write an appearing poem.


Fragments G&C  #165  30"x30" gouache on w/c paper

Waitng for the Image to Appear
It is early
Still dark outside
The minutes tick
The hands move
Slowly around the
Face of the clock

I arrive
Without an idea
Empty
And yet I have
Intention

The plane is white
Like unblimished
Snow
I make a plan
Set a goal

It is necessary
If I ever hope to
Cross the finish line
I must begin the
Race

Knowing
Nothing
Of importance
Happens quickly
There will be
Days when I will
Wonder
What is it
How will it look
And I will long
For the finished
Image

All the while
As I work
Days pass
Trying to remember
The best part
Will be the journey
Not the destination
The same
As in life

So true, of creating art and living life. Especially true now, as the journey shortens.
