So I know I haven’t posted in a while…the combination of school, homework, and working out (while trying to be somewhat social and have fun) is proving to be extremely time consuming. I barely sleep. BUT–I do write poetry. It was actually for my literature class, but I thought I would share and let you know that I will post again sometime when something incredibly cool happens to me or I start skiing again. I hope it’s before then, but you never know. So, here it is:
“deep white expanses” –a “Road Not Taken” parody
I was hiking through deep white expanses,
And trudging and pushing and panting…
‘til at last! I’m atop this great pile of rock
and standing before me, my chances.
I stood gaping—and back and forth glancing.
One path was so vast, white, and mellow,
The other: steep perilous and black–
So black that it made my heart yellow,
But down it’s spiny back I did throw
And vow to not think—not look back.
Through chutes and on and pillows I roamed
Deep breaths of white snow I inhaled.
At the peak I had left looking down
My colorless, comfortable home;
For tranquility, I’m still glad I traded.
To this time I think of that day
When I surpassed my prior wise walls.
In that feeling of flying I bathe
Every day in the winter, in it I lay
So content that I found my brain balls.
