Here’s your Reason 2 Rhyme for the week…
Write a letter to a landscape or scene you pass through today (or often). For example, “Dear Williamsburg Bridge,…”
I thought this was an interesting challenge, since it forces us to take a new look at familiar landmarks or scenes we might take for granted. Here’s my point of view on the view from my kitchen window…
The distance between us is ever the same
While you wax and wane
Fickle as the moon.
As a lover, flush with money
You treat me to green banks
and rippling waters.
But only in the good times.
Now, the drought dries up your bounty,
No raining paychecks from the sky.
The scummy skin of deprivation
You shrink into yourself.
I wait for the coming change
and the day you will reach for me again.
