Poetry Quickfire

What hits me poetically during lunchtime...

It's funny how I think of these quickfires at lunch. It's my quickest meal of the day. When I try to give myself some longer poetic inspiration time, I hear my husband's favorite phrase repeating in my mind, "I got nothin'!" I guess I'll just "go poetic" whenever I can. Thanks for reading!


Plug In


Push myself into a space
where I can jolt with life.

Shuffle today around a view
where I can pulse with air.

Chisel worth out of now
where I can shock with truth.

Extend frame to fit self
where I can power with real.

Well, as I sit here finishing my peanut butter and jelly sandwich, I laugh to myself thinking about this poetic attempt at self-empowerment. I should be writing a poem about will power since I'm going to head over to the pantry to get the HUGE cookie waiting for me :)

Joanne said...

"Chisel worth out of now." I like that line, to take every moment and find, shape, form the meaning from it. A valid sentiment for us to keep in mind!

Well food is very inspiring!! :) Love your quick fired poetry Kelly. Take inspiration in whatever way you can get it and keep your chin up!

Sharon said...

Powerful inspiration in very few poetic words. I found you through Glnroz and thank him for the referral.

When you write that poem about will power let me have it because I need some too:) where are those cookies?
YOu are so gifted in the writing department. Awesome job.

Susan Fobes said...

Cookies! Unfortunately, I love these too much, and if they are in the house, more of them end up in my stomach than anyone else's. So, I stopped buying them-the kids were most understanding (not!) LOL!

Jenners said...

I like how you see yourself in this poem! And I, for one, could not resist a BIG COOKIE! Enjoy ... you deserve it.

The Write Girl said...

This sounds like a delicious and fun poetry session. Hope you had a great day :)

Michelle said...

You know you got me all distracted with that comment at the end about the giant cookie. *sigh* Now I want one.

Caroline said...

Ohhh I love this one! Very powerful...hope that cookie was good ;)

T Rex Mom said...

How was that cookie! Maybe if it was really good it merits its own poem?!?

Sarah Laurence said...

This flash poem captures the moment well. You have to work when inspiration comes. Cookies help too!

Rowena said...

I love this and I love flash poetry. I wonder, if I have a pb&j can I flash on a poem, too?

I count a flash poem as part of baby steps. Oh, and I hope the job search is going well. We were looking for two years, and now are finally employed... but rather, well, lower down on the scale than we should be. Underemployed, I suppose, but better than nothing.

Vicky said...

ha ha! I'd be inspired too with a big cookie waiting around the corner for me :) It truly is a power filled poem! Did you feel more empowered?

Whitney said...

"Chisel worth out of now." I love it :)

And thanks for stopping by! I look forward to reading (and writing!) more :)

Teresha@Marlie and Me said...

creative writing always makes me crave sugar too, LOL! Thanks for the lovely comment on my WW post!

Paul C said...

Jolt with life. I like that. The mass media is full of jolts. The real jolts, however, come from living, breathing real human interaction.

Becca said...

I love these little quickfires of yours! Hope you enjoyed the mess out of that cookie!

Ken Devine said...

You really ARE talented. Chisel worth out of now
where I can shock with truth is so well put...the whole poem / verse / whatever (I'm not well versed in these things), has such an aura of originality for me.

There's nothing wrong with cookies...unless they are huge!

Creativity!! said...

Fabulous Lines Dear :) :)

Angela said...

You certainly are blessed with the gift of writing. Oh, and I just LOVE cookies. Enjoy one for me! :)

Beth Kephart said...

You have inspired me! I want to do a quickfire. Your site is always so imagined, and your heart is so big.

Beverley Baird said...

Wow - a very powerful poem!

christy rose said...

I hope the cookie was worth it! I find that sometimes it is and sometimes it is just NOT! The idea of the cookie is sometimes better than the real thing. LOL :) Loved your poem though.

Dan Felstead said...

Chisel Worth out of now...I love this line Septembermom. The idea of have to work at finding our worth sometimes...I will remember this line.

I thought cookies were for empowerment. ;)

I love this poem.

I love the reference with electricity. It is nice to see creative thought in unconventional ways. Sometimes we say that we need to unplug from things that overwhelm us until self is recharged yet being plugged into a life makes one more energized. Rejuvenated. Love it!
