IGWRT Out of Standard - "Day of Reckoning"

An image of Charleston's Ravenel Bridge over the Cooper River

Day of Reckoning

A little bit of naughty
entertains,
keeps introspection
at bay,

denies
loneliness stings
as gaiety
whirligigs, spins

toward
a  personal bridge,
life's purpose,
challenged:

Become the cure
or continue the comedy,
direction taken
hopefully illuminated,

finish line
alight with smiles,
not mockery
and gloom.

Written for Imaginary Garden with Real Toad's "Out of Standard" Film School Drop Out Edition.  We were to write a poem in reaction to the following You Tube movie clip:


Just got back from Spring Vacation (visited Charleston, SC... again :)  and I have a lot of catching up to do.  I did write a poem a day with pen and paper and will be sharing them here and making the rounds to see what everyone has been writing.

I've decided Astrid and I need to visit Charleston one of these trips back to Atlanta. I'd really like to spend time there!
