What got you here… – NaPoWriMo 2011, day 1


What got you here?
I wish I knew.
It was just walking,
which turned to climbing
and then it was a sheer fall,
that may have been a flight
into this wintry cottage
of blooming peaches all around
where gold was falling to the ground
and turning into autumn leaves.

What got me here?
I wish I knew.

  1. An intriguing poem with a sense of mystery! Behind Nature’s season of change, there seems to be some change or question in a relationship! Beautiful!

  2. Mariya, your poem is alive with that sense of beauty and mystery that is life. Good one shot!

  3. well i clicked on a link at 1SP…lol. i think as important is to ask what will get us there…its good to look back so we learn the answer…

  4. Beautiful natural imagery packed into relatively short lines. What i like best is after the first two lines I expected the poem to rhyme, and when I became reconciled with the fact that the piece wasn’t a rhyming poem, you turn around a drop the around/ground rhyme in there unexpectedly. That was very cool.
